All Iowans with current licenses or ID's, click here for information on obtaining a REAL ID before October 1st, 2020!

What is a REAL ID?

Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act enacted the 9/11 Commission's recommendation that the Federal Government “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver's licenses.” The Act established minimum security standards for state-issued driver's licenses and identification cards and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for official purposes licenses and identification cards from states that do not meet these standards. States have made considerable progress in meeting this key recommendation of the 9/11 Commission and every state has a more secure driver's license today than before the passage of the Act.


Are you new to the State?  Do you have a current Iowa Driver's License or ID card, but would like to get one marked REAL ID compliant?
