BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The federal government is giving North Dakota more time to get driver’s licenses in line with federal identification requirements for boarding a plane and getting into federal facilities.

The state Transportation Department says federal Homeland Security has given North Dakota a waiver until October 2020 to comply with the Real ID Act. The state earlier had received an extension that expired in October 2018.

State officials estimate that Real ID-compliant credentials will begin being issued in North Dakota next summer.
