With an expected uptick in the number of air travelers this Thanksgiving holiday, getting to the airport early with your acceptable identification in hand is the best way to ensure smooth holiday travel and reduce checkpoint delays.
“The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) offers a wealth of information on its website about acceptable forms of identification when traveling through airport security checkpoints,” said Department of Driver Services(DDS) Commissioner Bert Brantley. “Any Georgian using a temporary ID issued from a DDS center should bring additional identification or arrive early to avoid delays that could impact your travel.”
Customers may access the TSA web site for a list of acceptable identity documents at https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/identification. It is recommended arriving up to two hours ahead of departure for domestic travel and three hours ahead for international.
All DDS administrative offices and customer service centers will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday on Thursday, Nov. 23 and Friday, Nov. 24.
