TSA PreCheck® Returns to Modesto

The IdentoGo TSA PreCheck® Mobile RV will be coming to the Modesto City County Airport from Monday, January 20th through Thursday, January 30th, 2020. The Mobile Enrollment Center will be located next to the parking structure in front of Google Building TC1.

TSA PreCheck® is an expedited screening program that enables identified low-risk air travelers to enjoy a smart and efficient screening experience. For TSA PreCheck®  travelers, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops, light outerwear or belts. Today, TSA PreCheck® has more than 450 lanes at 200+ U.S. airports. Once approved, travelers will receive a “Known Traveler Number” (which can be added to a travelers airline profile and reservations), and will have the opportunity to utilize TSA PreCheck®  lanes at select security checkpoints when flying on over 50 carriers that currently participate in TSA PreCheck®.

To participate in this local enrollment event, make sure to complete the online application.  For appointment location choose "RV Pop-Up: Modesto City County Airport."

Appointments are limited and are available on a first come, first serve basis, so register as soon as possible. To complete the application process, you will need to bring documentation proving identity and citizenship status. If you have a valid U.S. passport, that is all you need for ID! You will finish the process onsite by providing your fingerprints for a background check. The application fee is $85 and can be paid by credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier's check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. Apply
