When will the phased mobile driver’s license rollout start? Which airports/states will be first in line for this new technology?

TSA began testing the acceptance of digital IDs, including mobile driver’s licenses (mDLs) from participating states at select TSA PreCheck® checkpoints in early 2022. Checkpoints that are testing the acceptance of mobile driver’s licenses will have signage posted. TSA is actively engaged with other organizations to continue developing capabilities, standardizing the digital ID ecosystem to ensure interoperability with TSA systems, and piloting digital ID technology at various airport checkpoints around the country.

 Participating Field Assessment Pilot Airports

  • Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI)
  • Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW)
  • Gulfport Biloxi International Airport (GPT)
  • Harry Reid International Airport (LAS)
