COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles reminds you that in just under one year, your state issued-ID or driver’s license must be “real ID” compliant.

That’s in order to get through a TSA checkpoint and board an aircraft.

That requirement which has been delayed due to the pandemic is now effective May 3, 2023.

The BMV says only 46-percent of Ohioans have an ID that is federally compliant.
