VA DMV to offer TSA PreCheck, discounted license renewal

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles will soon offer U.S. Transportation Security Administration PreCheck for travelers at several DMV locations, including the Tysons Corner office. This will greatly simplify the arduous TSA PreCheck applications process travelers have heretofore taken in stride in order to gain the much sought after upgraded PreCheck screening at airports. And as of July 1, Virginia residents can receive a $1 discount to renew a driverês license or replace a title online.

Other changes announced by Virginia DMV:

« DMV will start participating in the Driverês License Data Verification Service, developed by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. The service will help businesses cut down on fraud by verifying the credentials presented by customers.

« DMV will offer Transportation Worker Identification Credentials, required for truck drivers.

« Virginia drivers with expired licenses will be able to renew them online, using a new legal presence verification option available later this summer.

« Students will be able to take learnerês permit exams in their schools instead of having to go to the DMV.

Customers can now take driverês license knowledge exams in three new languages: Japanese, Dari and Mandarin Chinese.
