As of yesterday, 1/30/2017, the federal government will no longer accept Maine driver’s licenses as a form of identification.
With this, you will no longer be able to go into government buildings or any military based properties using your Maine license as identification.
Maine refused to comply with the Real ID Act since it became law in 2005.
The law requires more information on state-issued identification cards.
Starting next year, this law goes a step further and you will no longer be able to use your license to board a commercial airplane.
The state claims that they are working on correcting this, however, in the meantime you will need to use a passport as your primary identification if entering a government or military property.
