The countdown is on to get a new enhanced Florida license and ID card

In less than a year, on October 1, 2020, every air traveler over the age of 18 will need a Real ID driver's license to fly within the United States.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles started issuing the more-secure Real ID card in August 2017.

The new cards have twice as many fraud protection measures as the last one.

There are now header colors, which distinguish the different types of ID's, like blue for commercial and orange for a learner's permit.

Designations are now featured on the new IDs too, so veterans, organ donors, boaters, and those with disabilities will have an identifying logo. So will sexual predators.

You may have a Real ID already if you have a yellow and white star in the upper right corner of your Florida licence and ID.

If you don’t have the star, there are two ways a Real ID: In person or online.

If you do it in person, you can find a list of offices in your county here.

If you want to get a Real ID online, follow this link.
