Feds wonít accept Missouri, Illinois driverís licenses at federal facilities

http://fox2now.com/2015/12/24/feds-wont-accept-missouri-illinois-drivers-licenses-at-federal-facilities/

MISSOURI/ ILLINOIS, AP_ Missouri residents soon will no longer be able to use their state driverís licenses as identification to get into most federal facilities.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has sent a letter to Missouri stating that its exemption from federal Real ID requirements will come to an end Jan. 10. The letter to Missouriís revenue director was dated Monday and obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press.

The decision means that Missouri driverís licenses cannot be accepted as ID at military bases and most other federal facilities.

The 2005 Real ID Act set tougher requirements for proof of legal U.S. residency in order for state driverís licenses to be valid for federal purposes.

1. There are a few other states as well

included in this issue. I think the number was 5, but since it was a 2005 act, they have all had plenty of time to get their act together as it appears the other 45 have been able to do.

4. thanks for this. the article doesn't say how one would acquire the "accepted" ID.

Have you heard anything about getting another ID?

5. Unfortunately, no. This was news to me.

I was just going to get passport and call it done.


I looked up some info on the requirements for the 2005 law and MO. I am not sure what we are missing to be honest. When I got my last one in 2010, I had to bring all sorts of extra documentation compared to prior renewals. The possible exception being a SSN card--but I need that when I got my license in '82!
