What is an State extension for REAL ID?

Since federal agencies can't accept driver's licenses or IDs issued by states that don't meet the REAL ID requirements for official purposes, the Secretary of Homeland Security can grant an extension of time to meet these requirements. If a state has been granted one of these extensions, then federal agencies CAN accept non compliant driver's licenses and IDs.
