State reminds residents of ID changes

NEW YORK STATE--New requirements coming online in six months will change the identification requirements for flying in the United States. The federal REAL ID Act takes effect May 3, 2023, and will require those flying to present more than just a standard driver's license or other form of identification. Those flying will have to present an enhanced ID or a passport to board domestic flights.
The New York state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced last week it has developed a multi-pronged public awareness campaign, spearheaded by DMV Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder. In events held around the state, Schroeder - sometimes accompanied by officials from the U.S. Transportation Airport Security Administration, emphasizes the impending deadline.
"We do not want to see anyone unable to board a plane next May because they do not have the right identification," said Schroeder. "We are traveling to airports, attending public events and community gatherings throughout New York state to remind everyone of the REAL ID deadline and to let them know they can get one today. We appreciate our partners at the TSA, at the airports, and state and county officials who share our goal of enabling all New Yorkers to get a REAL ID in one convenient visit to the DMV."
Securing the REAL ID must be done in-person in accordance with federal mandates. Online applications are not available, although DMV customers who visit select offices can now get their application for a REAL ID or Enhanced ID digitally pre-screened prior to visiting the DMV. Completing the pre-screening process will ensure, according to the state, that customers have all the required paperwork and verification documents necessary to complete the transaction when they arrive at the DMV office.
Pre-screening is available to customers who plan to complete the process at a DMV office in Chemung, New York City, on Long Island, or in Westchester, Albany, Rockland, Onondaga, and Schenectady counties. To access the REAL ID or Enhanced ID applications pre-screened pre-screening tool, visit
An Enhanced ID is acceptable for REAL ID purposes and can also be used instead of a passport to return to the US by land or sea from Canada, Mexico and some countries in the Caribbean.
