WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- Delaware is preparing to phase in regulations that will require residents who want to board a commercial airplane or train to have a federally compliant identification card.
Jennifer Cohan, director of the Division of Motor Vehicles, says Delaware DMV offices will start issuing new licenses on July 1 as they start phasing in the new ID cards.
The new requirement takes effect Dec. 1, 2014 for those born after 1964. Those born before that date have until Dec. 1, 2017.
Cohan says residents are not required to obtain a new ID card but won't be able to travel by plane on train after the deadlines if they do not.
