Officials with Nevada's Department of Motor Vehicles say they're seeing a lot of people in line that don't need to be there.
It started when the DMV rolled out it's new "ASI" license, a card with enhanced security features to comply with the federal "Real ID" act. Eventually the new style of card will be required for federal security screenings at airports.
However, officials say a lot of people are showing up thinking they need the new gold-star licenses right now to get on a plane. "You don't need to get one right now," explains DMV spokesman Tom Jacobs, "the card that you have in your wallet or your purse is still good for federal purposes."
In fact, the new cards won't be needed until the end of 2014 for most people. People born before December 1964 do get a little longer, they don't need the new licenses until 2017.
Several DMV offices will accept applications for the new cards, which feature a gold star in the upper right-hand corner, but Nevadans who need to renew should do so online or via mail if possible.
The new cards come with strict requirements. You'll need documentation to verify your identity, address, and social security number.
