(WIVB)–TSA officials are reminding you the clock is ticking to get a REAL ID.
You will not be able to board a plane without it.
Congress passed REAL ID standards into law back in 2005 following a recommendation from the 9/11 commission.
It requires State ID applicants to submit paperwork to prove who they are and where they live.
The deadline to get a REAL ID is next October.
