The Real ID program, which has its roots in a law passed in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, fundamentally seeks to ensure the authenticity of a state-issued identification – typically a driver’s license. Though many years in execution, the program still has a ways to go with fewer than 50% of Americans having a compliant license.

Many states are far behind, in part because issuing a Real ID-compliant license requires the driver to present a raft of paper documents in person to local vehicle registration offices. The pandemic, which has limited public access to state (and federal) offices tossed in a last-minute roadblock.
