Illinois Drivers Licenses Still Good at Airports, Not in Federal Buildings

Illinois Drivers Licenses Still Good at Airports, Not in Federal Buildings

Springfield – On January 10th Illinois Driver’s Licenses are no longer considered a valid form of federal identification, but will still get you on a plane. After two years of extensions, the state has failed to get into compliance with the 2013 “REAL ID” act which boosted security measures for all state issued identification cards. While Illinois licenses will not grant their carriers access to federal buildings, the Transportation Security Administration will continue to honor them, meaning airport access will not be prohibited.
