Star Card

Idaho’s Real ID 


What is a Star Card

Beginning October 1, 2020 , you will need to have a Star Card or another accepted form of ID, such as a passport, to fly commercially or access a federal facility, national laboratory, or military base. 

The Star Card is an Idaho Driver’s License or ID that adds a Star to show it is in compliance with REAL ID security standards. Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act requires uniform standards for credentials, such as driver’s licenses. The standards focus on proof of identity and the documents you must provide to  verify you are who you say you are. http://itd.idaho.gov/StarCard
