TWIC Registration Process Gets Simplified


Truck Driver TWIC Registration SimplifiesOne-stop shopping. That’s what a bill recently passed out of the House Homeland Security Committee is seeking to make the Transportation Worker Identification Credential enrollment process easier.

TWIC, which has enrolled 2.1 million truck drivers, longshoreman and other port workers, is a biometric-capable identity card that can be read by remote devices to check fingerprints, residency documents and other information. It allows card holders access to secure areas within ports.

Currently, truck drivers seeking the credential are forced to make multiple trips to enrollment centers, many without truck parking and often hundreds of miles from drivers who do not live in metro centers.
