I just renewed my DL a few months ago, so I'm not getting the Real ID anytime soon. I always travel with my passport anyway, even on domestic flights.

Yikes! I have to renew mine this year. I don't think FL has an option to get the old style license.



I wonder if they will stop it after the oct deadline

I don't know if this is true, but, I was told by the passport person you would need your star/real ID to enter government buildings and there was going to be some law saying you had to have one.
Again, this is what I was told, I have no idea if it's true, I'm just going to get one either way.


So what's the purpose of the real ID in the first place? All conspiracy theories welcome.

The purpose is to have all states use the same screening and security. Right now all states do things differently. In PA if you have unpaid traffic tickets they wont let you renew it. Sone states wont renew because of back child support. I believe now if you have unpaid in Texas and try to get ID in PA it will get rejected

It is basically a Federal response to ID security after 9/11.

Nevada info:

Enforcement has been delayed a couple of times to the current the Oct 2020 date.

Wow, you gotta love government efficiency. Just a shade under 20 years to implement this!

If someone gives you a check for chrismas and you forget about it until today. Should you cash it? The person who gave it to me is not the type of person to balance a check book so he probably has no idea that it is outstanding.

Ask the person if they have the funds in their account to cover the amount, then cash it.

I would call the person and tell them that I just found the check they sent me for Christmas and would they like me to return it? Hopefully they will just say to go ahead and deposit it.

that is probably a good way to handle it. I didnt want to just call and ask if I could cash it.
