The federal government does not allow this. You have to show two residency documents per the REAL ID Act. States also are no longer allowed to issue licenses on the spot and must mail them to you,...

Having to produce proof of identity and residency in order to get a driver's license is not a new thing. REAL ID might have shortened the list of permissible documents that can be used as proof, and...

People love to hate them, but yet keep using them. Clearly they offer a better overall value proposition than the wonderful small airports that everyone praises.

Not necessarily. I assume they will still be able to load with a regular chip card at a machine, or online. They will only need a contactless card if they wish to avoid the proprietary card and pay...

I'm sure you're aware of this by now, but I'll answer it anyway. The airline checks your name against the no-fly database, and then the TSA makes sure that the name on your ticket, which was checked...

As stated in the article, TSA is accepting an I-862 (notice to appear in court) as ID. These do not have a photo so it could be anyone presenting it. Of course these people have no US credit...

Per their website, the California DMV issues ID cards to non-drivers of any age. I believe this is the case in most states.

Non-REAL ID compliant licenses are perfectly valid for driving, so you should have no problems.

With that said, licenses that are marked "not valid for federal purposes" are still not widespread,...

I don't see any reason to exercise a right just because you can. You have the right to stand outside a police station and jump up and down on one foot while wearing a chicken suit, but that doesn't...

How exactly did this happen? Was it the cashier who asked you for ID, or the app? If the cashier did it, do you think the register prompted her to do so, or did she do it on her own initiative? I...

What would make one think that they aren't? You pay for a seat, not for access to a cabin. It's not a first class lav, it's a lav that happens to be located near the first class seats.

Kroger has 2,782 supermarkets. Of these 21 are Foods Co and 142 are Smith's. This means that Kroger just extended the Visa ban from 0.8% of its store base to 5.1%. I'm not yet convinced they are...
