No, and I'm not getting a Real ID compliant license when I renew next month. I have a passport and passport card, so I don't need it.

I got the Real ID when I renewed last year. It's important because I'd prefer not to carry my passport while flying domestically.

Hardest part was remembering where I had my Social Security card stored.

Relevant to my interests in getting an NC driver's license tomorrow (if I can make it to the DMV, and pass the test or whatever hoops I need to jump through).

The gold star marks that the license is compliant with the "real ID" requirements, verifying identity and residence. I don't know what documents you will need as a Canadian citizen (or even if you can get one that is Real ID compliant), but check the NC DMV website -- it will likely have an FAQ of some sort.

I don't have the gold star, I have one better -- a tiny American flag.

I have an "enhanced" license which verifies citizenship and is sufficient for border crossings to Canada, Mexico, and most Caribbean countries without a passport by land or sea (but not air).

We just got the youngest kiddo her passport (once she turned 16 and couldn't cross the border with just birth certificate) and so won't be getting the Real ID compliant license when she gets her DL next month either. If she wants to get a Real ID compliant license 10 years from now instead of renewing her passport, that'll be her choice, but in the meantime, I -just- paid for a document that works. /cheapactuary
