If you are looking to fly this fall, time is running out to make sure you have the proper ID to be allowed to board an airplane.

Starting October 1, every person will have had to upgrade their driver’s license to a Real ID.

To date, millions of Americans have not upgraded. The TSA issued the change in response to the 9/11 terror attacks.

All states now have the same guidelines in issuing a driver’s license.

To get a REAL ID, you have to bring your birth certificate or passport, social security card, and two forms of approved paperwork showing where you live.

A Real ID has a star in the top right hand corner. Most people in Nebraska are in compliance.

If you don't get the REAL ID by October, you can still travel with your passport, military ID or tribal identification.
