Using Expired IDs during the COVID-19 emergency
TSA will be temporarily accepting drivers licenses that expired beginning on March 1, 2020 at security checkpoints as an acceptable form of identification if a person was unable to renew it due to COVID-19 restrictions. According to TSA's coronavirus webpage, the expired license will be an "acceptable ID for 1 year after the expiration date, plus 60 days after the COVID-19 national emergency" concludes. More information about this policy, as well as other TSA COVID-19 items like a map highlighting which airports have TSA officers with confirmed cases of the virus, can be found at tsa.gov/coronavirus.
The Transportation Security Administration performs screening operations at the terminal for all airline flights. TSA regulations prohibit certain items that can be carried through the screening checkpoint. Please check with your airline for any additional restrictions that may apply.
Flying with a REAL ID
