The Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division is making it easier for customers to locate offices to obtain Voluntary Travel IDs before Oct. 1, 2020.

A Voluntary Travel ID is an Arizona Drivers License or ID that meets the requirements of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. Standard licenses and ID cards do not meet the requirements of the REAL ID act in Arizona. 

October of 2020 is important because the U.S. Transportation Security Administration will no longer accept standard Arizona driver licenses or I.D.s at airport checkpoints. Fliers must obtain a Voluntary Travel I.D. or have another form of accepted identification such as a U.S. Passport.

A visit to an MVD or Authorized Third Part location is required to obtain a Voluntary Travel I.D. and locations and information can be found at

The cost is $25 for renewals and the credential is valid for eight years.
