About the Real ID Program (Future Federal Identification Purposes)
The CT DMV started a program called Real ID for customers renewing driver licenses and DMV-issued ID cards. It stems from national security measures and federal identification standards resulting from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the U.S. It is also designed to offer  residents additional protection against identity theft. DMV will offer these customers renewing driver licenses and DMV-issued ID cards the option to have the same identity verification that existing federal and state standards give to new license and ID card applicants. It will also become an historical record at the DMV should you have a problem with identity theft. This identity verification is a one-time review of original identity documents.

Enforcement Dates:  Beginning October 1, 2020, every traveler will need a REAL-ID-compliant license or State ID or another acceptable form of identification to fly within the U.S. 
The State of Connecticut IS compliant; you may continue to use your state-issued driver's license or ID to fly in the U.S. until October 1, 2020.
