MAYVILLE – Chautauqua County’s Clerk is reminding local travelers that REAL ID enforcement for commercial domestic air travel, and other federal purposes, is one year away.

Clerk Larry Barmore issued a statement on Monday about the new policy, which takes effect next year on May 3, 2023.

The federal law that affects how states issue driver’s licenses and ID cards if they are going to be acceptable for federal purposes such as boarding a domestic flight or entering a federal building.

The Clerk says those wishing to obtain a Read ID or Enhanced driver’s license can visit one of our county DMV offices, either by walk-in or by making an appointment on our DMV website.

The measure has been pushed back several times, due to the pandemic.
