How to sign up for TSA PreCheck

How TSA PreCheck Works

TSA PreCheck can significantly reduce the time required for security screening.

If you travel – even if only occasionally – you may be interested in enrolling in the TSA PreCheck program.

TSA PreCheck passengers have access to a separate TSA PreCheck security lane, allowing them to by-pass the lane with non-TSA PreCheck travelers. When it is time to go through security, TSA PreCheck travelers don’t need to remove their shoes, belts or light jackets, or take out laptops or approved travel liquid containers from carry-ons.
