Real ID - La. Driver's License question

Question for you smart La. baws of the OT. I went into an OMV branch last week and got my regular DL renewed to November 2028. Completely forgot to inquire into this Real ID and if that's even a thing anymore. Does anyone know if there is still this "super" type ID requirement that will make my regular one obsolete within the next few years? And from a 10,000 foot view, what is the purpose of this advanced identification? Tia.

Just get a passport and you will be good for anything.

They keep pushing it back. Youre fine

And just use your passport if it ever does change

I got my DL renewed in September and they said in May 2023 it goes into effect. I didnt feel like going home and getting all kinds of other ID to verify I was me just to get the "Real ID".

No it isn’t. The MOTB will be attached to you (like a quantum dot tattoo) or in you (like a chip).

If you have a passport you can use just that to get your REAL ID or just use the passport when you fly.

The real ID isn't worth it if you have a passport.

There is. You will need it to fly. If you have a valid passport you will just need to bring that along if you don't get the "real ID"

Who wants to carry their passport if they don't have to?

I’ve had one for 3 years now. It’s really not that hard to get. Just have to bring a few extra pieces of ID.

Yeah. Go try to get your brake tag with that or hand it over at the speed trap.

I switched my license fron Colorado to Texas in 2020. Got my real ID when I did. It honestly didn't require much effort and it is nice not having to carry my passport all the time but I still do just in case.
