Did you know that Georgia is now one of the few states that have implemented digital IDs for use at select TSA checkpoints?
While they make it clear that this is not a replacement for your physical ID, the Georgia DDS states that this new option (available to iPhone and Apple Watch users) will make TSA checkpoints quick, easy, and secure for travelers.
To get started, Georgia residents must have a valid and easily readable Georgia driver’s license or ID card, as well as an iPhone 8 or later, or Apple Watch 4 or later, with the latest version of iOS or watchOS.
To add your Georgia Digital ID to your iPhone and Apple Watch follow the steps below:
- On your iPhone, open the Apple Wallet app.
- Tap the Add (+) button.
- Tap Driver License or State ID and choose Georgia.
- Choose whether you want to add it to your iPhone only or to both your iPhone and paired Apple Watch.
- Follow the onscreen instructions to scan the front and back of your driver license or state-issued ID.
