Expired Licenses

Carrieavila
New Arrival

Flight is at the end of July drivers license will be expired.  However I will be renewing it a week before my flight.  I will have the paper license but will not receive original in the mail before my flight.  Can I use my paper license showing it’s renewed?

TSA will allow you to fly with an expired license or no license at all so if the paper isn't good enough you still have options.  Just give yourself a little extra time to get through security.

An expired ID becomes an "other" category item. Bring a utility bill or something else to show you are still at that address. They may not even worry about it that day.

 

If you have a passport that also works. Or I got a card for Global Entry that is issued by TSA, they take that also.
