WA Driver’s License OK For Naval Station Everett

January 22, 2016


driver's license

Your current WA driver’s license will still get you into Naval Station Everett.

In spite of recent reports, officials at Naval Station Everett say there is currently no problem in using a Washington State Driver’s License to gain access to the base. On Wednesday a Department of Defense news article said the Washington standard driver’s license does not meet the Real ID Act and people would not be able to use it as ID to enter a Department of Defense facility. Today, Naval Station Everett released the following statement…

“Currently, nothing has changed regarding access to Navy Installations in the Pacific Northwest. Recent news reports suggest that Navy bases will not allow access to people from states that are not in compliance with the Real ID Act. In addition to the state of Washington, the other states and territories affected are American Soma, Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri and New Mexico. Once the Navy receives further guidance on potential changes regarding Navy base access we will let the public know.”

Thanks to Naval Station Everett public affairs for providing clarity on this.
