I called the license office and there’s (so she said) no way to speed things up and get a new license or any other form of picture id in less than 2 weeks. But, after much searching and cussing I ran into things like the following suggesting there has been an extension and a valid non Real ID GA license is acceptable until 2020. If anyone feels that’s an incorrect interpretation please let me know. If you feel that it’s correct then please share it if anyone else comes crying around here about the same issue. And thank you people for your help!!!
If travelers live in a Real ID compliant state but hold a noncompliant license, they will be able to use the noncompliant license as ID until Oct. 1, 2020.
If you haven’t yet received your state’s REAL ID compliant driver’s license — the new higher-security ID that will be required to board domestic flights — you probably won’t need to worry about it for a while: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has pushed the official deadline for enforcement from Jan. 22, 2018, to Oct. 1, 2020, for the 27 states that already have them available; other states have been granted extensions.
This means that if you have a driver’s license from one of the yellow-colored non-compliant states on the DHS website, your license could only be good for air travel through October 11, 2018. If you live in a green-colored compliant state, you have until Oct 2020 to be sure you have a compliant ID.
27 states, as well as the District of Columbia, already are compliant; people in those states can use their old IDs until Oct. 1, 2020, or can use their new Real IDs as they’re issued.
Update 12/28/17: The TSA has reached out to clarify that only IDs issued by compliant states can be used until 2020. IDs issued by states with extensions are valid until October 11, 2018.30 Jan 2018
I wanted to check the computer and tools and flashlight and carry on the drone and its batteries. Someone in another forum said I should not check the laptop, but I don’t have room for it in the bag with the drone.16 Oct 2017
