Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division announced an awareness campaign to encourage residents to get the Voluntary Travel ID.

MVD Director Eric Jorgensen said he wants everyone knows that starting October 1, 2020, TSA will not accept Arizona Driver Licenses and ID's at airports.

TSA will accept an Arizona Voluntary Travel ID, which is an Arizona Driver License or ID card that meets the additional identification requirements of the federal "Real ID Act of 2005."

Right now standard Arizona licenses or ID cards do not conform to the federal Real ID requirements because of a state law that says those steps must be taken voluntarily by the license or card holder.
