Flying with a REAL ID

Check for the star.

REAL ID-compliant cards are generally marked with a star located in the upper portion of the card. If you’re not sure, contact your state driver’s license agency on how to obtain a REAL ID compliant card.

Yes CA issues the regular license and an enhanced (REAL ID) license. A passport and all the other above IDs will get you on an airplane, regardless of what kind of driver license you have, if any.

With this caveat: "Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, if you plan to use your state-issued ID or license to fly within the U.S., make sure it is REAL ID compliant."

So, it's $36 for either a Real ID or CDL? That's if you are required to go in to renew your license?

I dunno, it was 36 bucks for me, the only ID I needed was my old license.

Yes.

Also, if you renew(ed) this year, but aren't ready to get the Real Id (i.e. don't have your paperwork ready), you can go back anytime before the end of the year and get the Real Id for free. They told me that at the DMW last month.

Btw, I wouldn't call it the CDL, CDL stands for commercial drivers license.
