From the Director: Will your driver license fly in October 2020?

AZDriverLicense Travel ID

By John Halikowski / ADOT Director


What’s in your wallet and, if it’s your driver license, will it fly?

With almost two years to go before Oct. 1, 2020, the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division is reminding Arizonans to obtain the Travel ID if they plan to fly commercially or visit federal buildings. This October 2020 date is critical because that’s when the U.S. Transportation Security Administration will no longer accept standard Arizona driver licenses or IDs at airport security checkpoints.

With our process improvements at our MVD offices statewide that have shortened wait times, a trip to MVD is a lot easier than it used to be. You will find locations of MVD offices and authorized third party offices where Travel ID services are provided on the MVD website, azdot.gov/mvd, under the online link “Hours and Locations.” You can make your office appointment online as well at ServiceArizona.com.

Recently, Governor Doug Ducey visited our MVD office at 51st Avenue and Indian School Road to witness the improvements we’ve made and acquired his own Travel ID.

Arizona residents who choose not to obtain the Travel ID will need to carry another form of federally accepted identification, such as a U.S. passport, if they wish to use air travel or enter federal buildings after Oct. 1, 2020.

For a complete list of identification documents to bring with you when applying for a Travel ID, visit the Driver Services section under Motor Vehicles at azdot.gov/TravelID. The Travel ID is valid for eight years.

So let me ask you, what’s in your wallet for Travel ID?
