Without valid identification, Montanans will soon no longer be allowed to fly commercially

March 12, 2017View for printing

Possessing a Montana driver's license means you're legally qualified to operate a motor vehicle, and it's the go-to document that most Montanans reach for when cashing a check at the grocery store or proving that they're old enough to buy liquor.

But on Jan. 22, 2018, Montana's state-issued driver's license will no longer be accepted as a valid form of identification if you plan to board a commercial aircraft.

Instead, you'll be required to produce a passport or some other form of identification that complies with Real ID, a 2005 law that sought to boost security by mandating nationwide standards for driver's licenses and other forms of identification.
