Travel ID Driver License

Enjoy the Benefits of an Arizona Travel ID Driver License

The Arizona Travel ID Driver License is an official identification card that meets the enhanced security standards set by the Federal Real ID Act.

The Travel ID Driver License adds an embedded star that proves your ID meets the new federal identification requirements. Beginning May 7, 2025, only the Arizona Travel ID Driver License (or State Identification Card), a U.S. passport, and other federally approved identification will be accepted at TSA airport security checkpoints for domestic travel.

Why Get an Arizona Travel ID Driver License?
While it’s not required, consider getting one if:

  • You often travel domestically and want to leave multiple forms of identification at home, as they are costly and hard to replace.
  • You’ll need to enter a federal building or military base
  • You want to avoid making a second trip and paying for another Driver License if you change your mind later.

Travel ID Document Requirements
Getting a Travel ID Driver License for the first time requires submitting identification documents that verify your identity, age, authorized presence, and Arizona residency.

Bring these in for your visit:

  • Arizona Driver License Application
  • Social Security Number
  • Proof of legal presence, which could be the following:
  • 2 proof of Arizona residency from an official source. For example: utility bill, mortgage company, leasing company, school, or government agency.

This list shows the general requirements, but depending on your circumstances, additional documents may be necessary. For example, official name change documents could be required to validate a legal name change. Contact us for further assistance!

Statewide, temporary credentials are issued for immediate use until the official ones arrive in the mail.

Schedule an appointment to minimize your wait time during peak hours or walk in at your convenience.

The Arizona Travel ID Driver License is not mandatory, but it’s something to consider if you travel often within the United States, need access to federal buildings or military bases, or want to avoid the hassle and expense if you change your mind later on. It serves the dual purpose of being both a driving license and a federally recognized ID.

Yes! Non-drivers of all ages can obtain a Travel ID in the form of a State Identification Card. The credential will say “Identification Card”  at the top and will serve the same identification purpose, without being a Driver License.

Simply bring in your Travel ID identification documents  — official, original, and unexpired identification documents along with two (2) proofs of address in Arizona.

Typically, the Arizona Travel ID Driver License is valid for eight (8) years if you’re under 65 and five (5) years if you’re over 65. But, if you’re a foreign resident in the US, the expiration of your Arizona Travel ID depends on your legal residency status, as shown on your authorized presence documents.
