    I'm not understanding WHY this Real ID act exists and what the reasoning is for it.

    A real ID establishes that you have confirmed US citizenship and residence with the issuing authority. One of the main reasons it came about is that some states, including mine, decided it would be a good thing to issue Driver's Licenses to illegal aliens. That made using a DL as proof of identity problematic. To get a Real ID, you have to provide proof of citizenship as well as proof of residence.

    If you have a passport you can use that instead.

    Virginia's drivers license is not yet Real ID compliant, but VA has an extension that is running out soon. I just got a my license renew two years ago so it has another 8 to go. I will not renew my license until 2026. In the mean time I can use my passport and Global entry card to fly and my military ID to get on federal installations.

    Do you know a NYS enhanced licence counts? I have to fly in March

    Because it's the law.

    As a witness or a defendant, I suppose you could get in. As a prospective juror you might not. For everything else you don't get in. That's the law.

    I think that the requirements are more than just what goes on the license, but what you have to show to get it.
    A Real ID requires proof of citizenship.

    I received an info card from my DL center and it doesn't ask for any more information than I already had to give them for my current DL,but they want me to come in now with all of my documentation so I can apply for the REAL ID in the spring. Doesn't make any sort of sense to me.
    Well, it doesn't have to make sense to you. It is supposed to be more secure. I'm in a state with an extension and haven't gotten one yet. My SC license was based on my PA which was based on my Ohio license. This would clean all that up. I've been told they are next to impossible to counterfeit.

    If you are required to be in court you have to be in court. The fact that you can't get in is your problem.
