The Transportation Security Administration would like to remind airline passengers that if their identifications aren’t REAL ID-compliant starting on October 1st, 2020, they’re not getting on a plane.

To drive the point home, the federal safety agency is launching a public awareness campaign so travelers aren’t caught off guard and rushing to their local DMV before the deadline.

TSA Administrator David Pekoske says the change to the more secure document will “dramatically improve commercial aviation security.”

REAL ID has rolled out in many states, with Oregon, Oklahoma, New Jersey, and Maine expected to be ready later this year.
