My manager is booking plane tickets for an upcoming conference in another state and he asked me for the following three things:
- my full name as it appears on my drivers license
- my DOB
- my drivers license #
The first two seem reasonable enough but the last item seems... fishy. I don't think I've ever been asked for a drivers license # when flying. I've been asked for a passport # when traveling internationally but not a drivers license #.
I mean, it seems to me that a drivers license shouldn't even be required for flying. You could be 40yo and not have a drivers license and you could get around exclusively using taxi's, uber's and public transit.
I realize a drivers license can be used to verify your identity to TSA but the documents you're providing to TSA don't need to be pre-registered or anything...
