New DMV/TSA Option in Stephens City
28 November 2016 News
The Department of Motor Vehicles, Stephens City weigh station on Interstate 81, has recently opened a Transportation Security Administration enrollment office.
Regulations starting July 1, allow DMV to work with TSA contractor Morpho Trust USA. This makes it possible to offer Transportation Worker Identification Credentials and TSA PreCheck.
TSA PreCheck allows travelers quick security screenings leaving select airports throughout the United States. Once citizens apply online, they can go to the Stephens City weigh station for an in person appointment for a background check and fingerprinting. Access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime facilities is provided with Transportation Worker Identification Credentials.
Virginia DMV is the first agency in the nation authorized to give federal credentials. This location is one of eight in the state, with a ninth to open next year.
