Remember that time when a TSA agent didn’t realize that a valid Washington, D.C. driver’s license counted as United States identification? It appears the agency would appreciate it if you did, because they’ve done it again.
Gray, who lives in Washington, D.C., was flying out of Orlando International Airport when a TSA agent said Gray’s District of Columbia driver’s license wasn’t a valid form of identification. Gray said his license is legal and up-to-date, but the TSA agent didn’t seem to know what the District of Columbia was when Gray arrived at the security checkpoint over the weekend.
When Gray handed the man his driver’s license the agent demanded to see Gray’s passport.
Gray told the agent he wasn’t carrying his passport and asked why he needed it.
The agent said he didn’t recognize the license.
Gray said he asked the agent if he knew what the District of Columbia is, and after a brief conversation Gray realized the man did not know.
