I'm travelling from NYC to Oregon on the 20th of June, and just now I checked my passport and realized it had expired in April. If I want to renew my passport, I either have to wait 8 weeks or more to get it done without paying, or pay over 100 dollars to get it expedited.

My question is: I have a learner's permit issued by the state of New York. Can I use that in place of a passport when travelling?

  • There's a list of acceptable ID at the TSA web site. If your learner's permit is a photo ID you might be in luck. – user90371 Jun 9 '19 at 7:15

    The TSA is generally ok with expired ID if it's recently expired, so your passport that expired in April is likely acceptable even if the learner's permit does not qualify. – Zach Lipton Jun 9 '19 at 8:44
