CLEAR Now Offers TSA PreCheck Enrollment, Renewals at MCO

CLEAR announced that consumers at select airport locations, including Orlando International Airport (MCO), may now use CLEAR’s dedicated TSA PreCheck enrollment pods to enroll in TSA PreCheck, no appointment necessary.

For the best of both worlds in travel, customers can bundle their enrollments in TSA PreCheck and CLEAR Plus, and save more than 35% off a CLEAR Plus membership. Officials say this means no need to take out your wallet or ID when you verify your identity with CLEAR Plus, and no need to remove your shoes, laptop or 3-1-1 liquids with TSA PreCheck.

Customers can simply walk up to CLEAR’s dedicated TSA PreCheck or CLEAR Plus enrollment pods and enroll in both programs  in minutes with the help of one of our hospitality-trained Ambassadors. Use CLEAR Plus right away, and for TSA PreCheck benefits, most applicants receive their KTN (Known Traveler Number) in 3-5 days, though some applications can take up to 60 days.

Since Transportation Security Administration (TSA) first launched the TSA PreCheck program as a DHS Trusted Traveler Program for low-risk travelers in December 2013, active membership in the program has grown to more than 19 million passengers. Now, the TSA is expanding TSA PreCheck with CLEAR.

“The TSA PreCheck trusted traveler program enables vetted, low-risk travelers to move through security more efficiently,” said TSA Administrator David Pekoske. “Additional enrollment providers make it easier for the public to enroll and enjoy a seamless travel experience.”

“TSA PreCheck with enrollment by CLEAR provides a fast and efficient airport experience,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “This is a win-win for U.S. travelers who will have access to more enrollment locations, expanded hours and other benefits.”

CLEAR now offers in-person TSA PreCheck enrollments and renewals at:

  • Orlando International Airport (MCO) from 6am until 8pm ET daily
  • Sacramento International Airport (SMF) Sunday through Friday from 6am until 8pm and Saturday from 6am until 6pm PT daily
  • Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) from 6am until 8pm ET daily.

Travelers will enroll at CLEAR’s dedicated TSA PreCheck airport enrollment pods. CLEAR will expand enrollment locations over time to additional CLEAR airport locations.

Visit the TSA PreCheck program’s official website for more information about renewing or enrolling in TSA PreCheck and to find enrollment locations and pricing information for all TSA PreCheck enrollment providers.

TSA PreCheck members may renew their memberships online with CLEAR, IDEMIA or Telos, regardless of who they enrolled with initially.

TSA’s wait time benchmarks for TSA PreCheck lanes are under 10 minutes and under 30 minutes for standard lanes. TSA PreCheck members are able to wear their shoes, belts and light jackets through screening, and they can keep their laptops and 3-1-1 liquids in their carry-on bags.

In May 2023, the agency announced that teenagers aged 13-17 may now accompany TSA PreCheck-enrolled parents or guardians through TSA PreCheck screening when traveling on the same reservation and when the TSA PreCheck indicator appears on the teen’s boarding pass. Children 12 and under may accompany an enrolled parent or guardian in the TSA PreCheck lanes without restriction. Enrollment providers submit applicant information to TSA, and TSA makes the final determination regarding an individual’s eligibility to participate in the TSA PreCheck program.
