Your Hawaii State ID or driver's license may not be accepted by airport security officers after October 2020. Under the Federal Real ID Act, states are required to verify certain personal information for those ID cards to be considered valid by federal authorities. Hawaii began compliance in 2014, but more recent changes mean that some ID's may still be considered invalid in 2020.
