No REAL ID Act gold star on my 2016 Georgia drivers license, but I got one on my issued-same-day official Georgia ID Card #DDS

According to the manager of the Kennesaw DDS office when I went back to ask why there is no star on my drivers license in September of 2018 (when I finally noticed it), I was informed that customers who are issued both the ID Card and the drivers license are only allowed to have a star on one or the other credential, not both. Nobody told me that when I was applying and nobody ever asked me which document I wanted the star on. I have since found this info on the DDS site.

Not many people want to carry two cards to show TSA in the airport. Somebody at DDS should ask customers which document they want the secure star on.
