Fort Carson Real ID Act Requirements

Personnel presenting state issued IDs or drivers licenses from these states will be required to present a secondary form of ID for access to Fort Carson.

Personnel who do not have an accepted form of secondary ID will be required to have an escort to enter Fort Carson.
