Newsmaker: REAL ID deadline fast approaching


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The federal government will soon be requiring people to get a Real ID in order to access some federal facilities.

Wes Moster with the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security joined News 2 at 11 over the phone to discuss how this impacts Tennesseans.

“Beginning October 1, 2021, that is the new implementation date for Real ID. You must have a Real ID, a valid U.S. passport or other TSA approved form of identification to board commercial flights within the United States, access certain federal buildings or enter nuclear power plants,” Moster said.
