What happens when a state’s extension expires?

When a state's extension expires, they can be banned from accepting state’s driver’s licenses or identification cards for federal purposes. With that said, though, the Secretary of Homeland Security can grant a short grace period before federal agencies start requiring REAL ID compliant documents to enter federal agencies, getting access to nuclear power plants or ride commercial airlines. States that don't actually receive an extension will be subject to REAL ID enforcement beginning on January 22, 2019.
