Are you compliant with federal REAL ID requirements?
The Federal REAL ID deadline has been extended. Starting October 1, 2021, you’ll need a valid passport, a U.S. military ID, or a REAL ID-compliant driver license with a gold star to travel in the U.S.
Got a valid passport or a gold star?
You’re compliant and good to go!
No gold star? You have options!
If your license or ID expires before October 2021, you’ll get the gold star on your next renewal. If your card expires before October 2022, you can renew up to two years ahead of time to get the gold star.
Can I renew online?
Visit www.texas.gov/dlrenewal to check your eligibility and renew your driver license or ID online, or you can visit a DPS office.
