TSA to Stiffen ID Requirements in October 2021
Arizona motorists who have a standard driver license or ID card have about 400 business days remaining until Oct. 1, 2021, when the federal Transportation Security Administration imposes stricter identification criteria for travelers to pass through airport checkpoints. Access to other facilities such as federal buildings and nuclear power plants is also affected.
The Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division offers the Travel ID to meet the requirements of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. State law requires that Arizona motorists be given a choice between being issued a standard license or ID or getting the Travel ID. Arizona is among 37 states to offer this choice.
In order to get the Travel ID, customers need to bring in a document such as a birth certificate or valid U.S. Passport to prove identity and a second document with their Social Security number to an MVD or Authorized Third Party MVD (FooteWork!!). Finally, two pieces of documentation such as a utility bill, bank statement or something similar with a current address are also needed. Customers who have changed names or use nicknames should keep the documentation as consistent as possible.
