Deadline for air travelers to get Real ID pushed back to 2023

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Department of Homeland Security is once again delaying the deadline for air travelers to have a Real ID in order to fly.

The original deadline was October of 2020, but it's now been pushed back to May 3 of 2023 due to the pandemic.

Homeland Security estimates that only about 43-percent of state-issued drivers licenses and IDs are Real ID compliant.
