Step by Step -- Apply for a Travel ID

Worth considering?

  • If you’re using your driver license or ID card at airport security checkpoints
  • If you’re getting an Arizona Driver License or identification card for the first time
  • If you’re renewing your current license
  • If you’re getting a 12-year photo update to your current license 
Not worth it?
  • If you furnish documentation other than your driver license or identification card at airport security or to gain access to secure facilities. A variety of documents other than a driver license are permissible at TSA checkpoints. For information on acceptable identification, please visit the TSA website.
