Trusted Traveler Program

The Trusted Traveler Program allows Military Members or DOD Civilians with a valid DoD ID card to vouch for occupants in their vehicle who are entering the installation for a day visit. The Trusted Traveler and their guests may enter the installation by vehicle or they may be accompanied through the gate on foot.

All guests must possess a valid form of identification for security and identification purposes.

All Trusted Travelers are responsible for ensuring that guests are with them at all times.

Special Event Sponsorship

Tenant units hosting special events aboard the installation (Change of Command ceremonies, Relief and Appointment, reunions, retirement ceremonies, weddings, etc.) must provide a guest list to PMO at least 14 days in advance of the event.

Using a government email account, email the guest list to SMB_PLMS_G-7_PMO_VEHICLE_REGS@usmc.mil

The following information must be provided for each guest.

  1. Full name.
  2. Date of birth.
  3. Social Security Number.
  4. Driver’s license number and issuing state.

Incomplete or inaccurate lists that require pre-vetting may not be completed in time for the event, delaying access for guests.

On the day of the event, the Vehicle Registration Office will provide a day pass (paper printout) to guests who were previously vetted. Any guests not pre-vetted will have to complete the screening process and will receive a day pass if successfully vetted.

Guests must check-in at the Vehicle Registration Office and present a valid ID or Driver's License to receive their pass.
