Applying for Precheck for 13 yo without photo ID?

I'm applying for my almost 13 year old and the online application states he needs photo ID. Is there any way around this for a minor?

Answer from @ ASKTSA on twitter:

"I have a 14 yo child & want to apply for precheck for her. only has a birth cert & school ID. no other docs on list. what can we do?"

"She will need a state-issued photo ID along w/ her birth certificate for TSA Pre✓ enrollment."


Based on your previous posts, it looks like it's time to get your kid an Arizona state ID card for $12.

(EDIT: Actually, you may want to get your son the $20 REAL ID-compliant "Arizona Voluntary Travel ID", to be sure he can board aircraft after October 2020, if there are no more REAL ID Act extensions for Arizona, and if he doesn't have a REAL ID-compliant driver's license by then.)

Or maybe a passport if you're going to start exploring the world with him?

Here's the overall list of acceptable identification documents for the PreCheck interview.

And here is the regulation for requiring ID of all applicants:
Travelers interested in enrolling in the TSA Pre✓TM Application Program will provide the necessary biographic and biometric information [2]

2.  . . . The biographic information that applicants will submit includes, for example: . . . identity verification information, such as a driver's license or passport.

Thanks. I neglected applying for a passport in time in order to use my chase sapphire reserve card for the global entry fee before the annual fee was up. So I figured I'd just go ahead with the precheck since I knew we'd be flying next year in the US. Sigh.
