FORT BRAGG, N.C. (WTVD) --Driver's licenses from five states will no longer be acceptable forms of IDs to get onto Fort Bragg.
The post will no longer accept licenses from Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, New Mexico and Washington from people wanting a visitor's pass. The move is in compliance with the REAL ID Act, a Post-9/11 law passed by Congress in 2005 that basically cracks down on identity fraud by outlining tougher requirements to prove legal U.S. residency.
The licenses from the aforementioned five states have been labelled by the Department of Homeland Security as "non-compliant" with the law.
"Driver's licenses and identification cards issued by these states cannot be used to access not just Fort Bragg, but all federal facilities, to include other military installations," said Tom McCollum, Fort Bragg's Garrison spokesman, in a statement.
The change is effective immediately, as many states that have not complied with the federal law take advantage of an October enforcement extension. The following forms of ID are acceptable supplements to those states' driver's licenses:
