Arkansas is compliant with the REAL ID Act, so if you have a license or state ID issued before 10/1/16, it will be valid at airports until 10/1/2020, when all IDs will need to be compliant to be used as federal identification. If you have renewed your license since 10/1/16, you had the option to choose the Real ID Compliant (Arkansas Voluntary Enhanced Security DL or ID) or non-compliant. The Real ID will have a star identifying it, while non-compliant IDs will note ‘not for federal identification’ and cannot be used for domestic travel.
