At the TSA PreCheck enrollment center itself—a cubicle space just after security checkpoint B6—you’ll need two forms of ID: a valid ID (driver’s license or passport) as well as another form of ID like a credit card or birth certificate if applicable; proof that you’ve had fingerprints taken recently (if they ask); and payment in cash or major credit cards such as Visa/MasterCard/American Express/Discover/JCB Card(s) only).
You’ll also have your photo taken there so that they can place it onto your new Known Traveler Number (KTN) card once they’ve issued one; this will take less than 5 minutes total time spent sitting at their desk waiting for them so don’t worry too much about how long this step will take before proceeding through security.*
