TWIC Card and TSA Pre✓® Services Now Available at Frederick Office
Hogan Administration Delivers Additional TSA Pre✓® and TWIC Card Services at the MDOT MVA Frederick Office
GLEN BURNIE, MD (September 8, 2017) – As part of the Hogan Administration’s commitment to improving customer service in Maryland state agencies, the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration (MDOT MVA) recently introduced TSA Pre✓® and TWIC (Transportation Worker Identification Credential) card services to its Frederick branch office, effective September 1, 2017.
“Bringing these services to our MDOT MVA branch offices shows Governor Hogan’s commitment to increasing the availability and convenience of state government services,” said MDOT Secretary Pete K. Rahn.
The TSA Pre✓® program allows enrollees to benefit from an expedited screening program that allows travelers to keep on their shoes, belts, and light jackets, leave their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels in their carry-on bag.
Maritime workers, including terminal employees, longshoremen, truck drivers, contractors, and agents are required to have a TWIC card to access secure locations throughout the state, such as Maryland Port Administration facilities.
“TSA Pre-Check allows Maryland travelers to save time during their trip, and the TWIC card is essential for workers who need access to secure locations throughout the state,” said MDOT MVA Administrator Christine Nizer. “We are proud to assist Marylanders with their travel and working needs.”
TSA Pre✓® and TWIC card services are offered in the Annapolis, Gaithersburg, Salisbury and Waldorf MDOT MVA offices for easy customer access Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. TSA Pre✓® and TWIC card services will be added to the Glen Burnie branch at a later date.
