I'm sure this has been asked before but I find so many conflicting dates and answers on the internet and when I contacted the TSA they were not very clear and gave me their usual copy/paste answer. So I am hoping someone on here is kind enough to clarify things for me. I live in Georgia and am flying out of Atlanta at the end of the month for a 2 week vacation. I do not have a passport and my license is still the old non-REAL ID license. It does not expire till end if next year so I haven't bothered renewing it yet. The DMV tells me it takes 30 days to receive a new license in the mail so I can't get a REAL ID before my flight, and temporary (paper) ids are not accepted. SO now I'm a little worried I won't be able to get through the TSA checkpoint at the Atlanta airport. Some places I've checked out say January 2018 was the REAL ID enforcement date and some places say it got pushed back to October 2020, and one said October 2018. And all the TSA told me was a non expired ID from all states are acceptable. So I'm really hoping someone can help me out and let me know if I'll be fine traveling or if I have to figure out another means of transportation. Last thing I want is to arrive and the airport then be told I can't fly.
Thank you for your help
