MVD NEWS: TRAVEL ID DELAY AND CORONAVIRUS CHANGES
AZ TRAVEL ID DEADLINE
The October 1 deadline for the new federal TSA REAL ID rules to take effect has been delayed ONE YEAR to October 1, 2021. As a result, MVD customers should postpone plans to get the AZ Travel ID. With this delay and the need to reduce customer traffic at MVD locations, all AZ Travel ID appointments have been cancelled.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but the ongoing Coronavirus situation requires MVD to significantly limit the number of people in offices. Only essential services that must be done in-person are being offered by appointment. Because the REAL ID timeline has changed, getting a Travel ID immediately is less vital for the time being and appointments are reserved for other crucial in-person services.
More than 2/3 of MVD services are available anytime at www.servicearizona.com. REMINDER: Anyone with a license or permit set to expire between March 1 and Sept. 1 has had that expiration date automatically extended by six months and updated on your motor vehicle record. You do not need to get a new license.
