Travel ID

NOTE: The deadline to obtain a REAL ID-compliant license or state ID has been extended further to May 7, 2025.


All Arizona driver licenses and IDs are valid for air travel until May 7, 2025 when every traveler will need a REAL ID-compliant license or state ID or another  acceptable form of identification to fly within the United States. Travelers can now reserve an appointment online and upload documents prior to their appointment on the new AZ MVD Now website.

The Arizona Department of Transportation has established the Voluntary Travel ID to comply with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. It is available as both a driver license and identification card. There is a gold star embedded in the card to show that the cardholder has provided added proof of identification to ensure the license or ID meets strict federal requirements.

The TSA has a Frequently Asked Questions webpage for those who have questions about air travel and REAL ID.
