So, what does this mean for you? You’ll need proof of citizenship when renewing your driver license. It could be a birth certificate, passport or social security card, and proof that you live in Tennessee, like a utility bill or a lease agreement. Megan Buell with Tennessee Homeland Security said the gold star makes your driver license federally compliant. If your license is not up for renewal, here’s what you need to do. Without that gold star on your driver’s license, there is this option.”If you don’t have that gold star indicator, you can use your passport to fly as well,” said Buell. Tennessee will begin issuing the Real ID drivers licenses in July.
