Arizonans who plan to use their driver license or ID card to get through security checkpoints at U.S. airports and other restricted, federally controlled facilities should take action to get an Arizona Voluntary Travel ID. ADOT and TSA want to get the word out that starting Oct. 1, 2020, standard credentials won’t be accepted by the TSA.
“Now is a great time to get a Voluntary Travel ID because the federal deadline gets closer every day,” said MVD Director Eric Jorgensen.
The Voluntary Travel ID is an Arizona driver license or ID card that meets the additional identification requirements of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. Standard Arizona licenses or ID cards do not conform to the federal REAL ID requirements because of a state law that says those steps must be taken voluntarily by the license or card holder. Per federal law, Voluntary Travel ID is valid for eight years, and five years if you’re over 65.
Forms of identification required for a Voluntary Travel ID include one document such as a birth certificate or a passport that proves identity; one document that proves a Social Security number such as a Social Security card or W-2 form; and two documents such as utility bills or bank statements that prove Arizona residency.
There are no plans to start making all driver’s licenses and IDs issued by Arizona to be compliant with the Real ID Act. The solution for those who travel is the Voluntary Travel ID.
