Was your license confiscated by the police after a DUI?
Or maybe you lost your license and have a trip planned and can’t make it to your local DMV with enough time to obtain a new license. Suhre & Associates often has clients whose licenses are taken from them at the time of an arrest or after sentencing. If a client needs to travel – for business or personal reasons – we want to provide the resources to help navigate the travel process without an ID.
What to expect?
Initially, TSA officers will request two forms of identification that must include one of the following:
- Phone Numbers
- Social Security Number
- Date of Birth
Some of the acceptable alternative forms of identification include:
- Student Identification Card
- Credit Card
- Birth Certificate
- Social Security Card
- Utility Bill
- Insurance Card
If you don’t have any of the above-mentioned alternative forms of identification, you will have to go through the ID verification process. During this process, a TSA officer may ask you to complete a form with your personal information on it and will ask additional questions to confirm your identity. Once your identity has been confirmed, you will be able to proceed through airport security. One thing to be aware of is that you’ll likely have to go through additional screening including a pat-down and bag search. If you are asked to undergo a pat-down, you can always ask for a supervisor to administer the screening or request to have the pat-down in a private area.
You don’t have to cancel a business trip or vacation if you lost your license or have a suspended license – just be sure to plan ahead and contact TSA if you have additional comments, questions or concerns.
