Real ID deadline postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic

Coronavirus

(WSYR-TV) — The coronavirus has caused President Donald Trump to delay the Real ID deadline.

The ID law would require travelers to carry an enhanced license by October 1 to board a domestic flight.

The president has moved the deadline to follow social distancing guidelines and avoid crowding at state DMV offices.

Lawmakers and governors had been pushing for a delay, as many states were having trouble processing requests during the outbreak.

New York State already closed DMV offices as a result of the pandemic.
