From what a relative experienced in a similar situation where she forgot her ID but had her passport, traveling domestically. If you bring just your current passport you will be subjected to secondary screening but you will be allowed through. So I think to be safe it would be best to take the passport.

Their website doesn't state an alternative to that case. It lists the valid forms of ID and expiration date is a parameter on the listing:

http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/acceptable_documents.shtm

http://www.tsa.gov/assets/pdf/apis_documents.pdf

I would bring something that isn't expired.

I thought you only had to have your travel document to travel, and a driving licence was invalid as a travel document now?

I believe they are talking about a domestic US flight.

Can't be expired. If you have another valid form of gov't ID bring it.

Unless this is recent, I don't think that's true. I usually use a passport for ID at the checkpoint when I'm going international, simply because I already have it out. I've never gotten secondary screening.

As for the OP's question- The best bet when dealing with TSA is to attract as little attention as possible, so bring a current ID.

No, I meant why do you need a passport AND a driving licence? I've flown on a US domestic flight with only a passport and have been fine.

As has been discussed on this site in the past, technically speaking, you do not need any identification at all when traveling domestically in the United States. If you forget your I.D., when checking in, politely tell the airline check-in staff and they will mark your boarding pass for secondary screening. TSA will then subject you to secondary screening. Now then, TSA could deny someone boarding if it wanted to, but personal experiences posted by people on this site indicate that if you are polite and respectful, 99 percent of the time TSA will let someone without identification board after being subjected to secondary screening. This happened to my mother-in-law: She forgot her I.D., informed the airline check-in staff of that fact, the airline marked her boarding card, and TSA subjected her to secondary screening and allowed her to board. Again, TSA could deny boarding, and it is always a good idea to travel with government-issued photo I.D., but technically speaking it is not required.

I know that this isn't the case for travelling but expired passports are OK for up to 10 years past their expiry date for age identification in the UK.

When my dad left his ID when we were traveling from JFK to TPA my mom had to go home and get his ID because the TSA agent wouldn't let him in. Our house was "only" 30 min away from JFK and boarding was 8:00AM (thankfully we were checked in by 6AM), my mom got back to the airport at 8:30-ish AM. As you can imagine, our names were called out throughtout the terminal several times and when we got to the plane everybody stared at us because we delayed the flight. Anyways, we always bring our passports, just in case.


It's a cultural thing.

Well, the TSA hasn't been known as the model of consistency when applying security rules.

Plainplane; what is the basis for your statement??

I use my passport for all domestic travel and have never been subjected to additional screening

Passport works for domestic US travel without automatic secondary screen. Expired drivers will not work if TSA notices.
