New Services Offered at Test Smartly Labs of Lee’s Summit

TSA Pre-Checks

Lee's Summit | TSA Pre-Checks, HAZMAT Cards, & TWIC CardsNo one likes waiting in long lines at the airport. With the TSA pre-check service at Test Smartly Labs of Lee’s Summit, you can avoid the checkpoints at participating US airports. You’ll experience an expedited onboarding process because you won’t have to remove your shoes, belt, jacket, or laptop during your screening.

To qualify for TSA pre-check status, you must be a US citizen, national, or Lawful Permanent Resident who has not been convicted of specific crimes, including espionage and treason — see a full list here. If you are qualified to apply, you can prepay online and sign up for an appointment at Test Smartly Labs to complete the process. Here are the TSA pre-check application steps:

  1. After prepaying and signing up for your appointment online, visit Test Smartly Labs of Lee’s Summit at 2741 NE McBaine Drive, Suite A, Lee’s Summit, MO 64064.
  2. You’ll provide biographical information, including your name, date of birth, and address.
  3. In addition, you’ll provide documentation to verify your identity and citizenship or immigration.
  4. We’ll fingerprint you to complete the in-person process.
  5. Around 2-3 weeks after your application is submitted and approved, you’ll receive your official Known Traveler Number (KTN), which is valid for 5 years, via US mail.

Once your TSA pre-check status is secured, you’ll use your KTN when booking any travel reservations with the ten participating airlines. Your boarding pass will indicate that you are TSA pre-check qualified, so when you present your pass and ID to the checkpoint, you’ll experience the streamlined boarding process.

HAZMAT Card Certification

Due to new restrictions made by the US Patriot ACT, truck drivers who need to operate vehicles carrying hazardous substances must receive a HAZMAT endorsement for their Commercial Driver’s License, or CDL.

HAZMAT card applicants must complete an application through a TSA-approved data collection vendor like Test Smartly Labs of Lee’s Summit. The process for certification will vary state to state. In Missouri, you must provide your fingerprints, your CDL number, and proof of your legal status and identity. Once you have passed the FBI background check, the TSA will initiate the security threat assessment process and notify you of your status within 30 days.

TWIC Card Certification

The TWIC, or Transportation Worker Identification Credential, is required for any worker who needs unrestricted access to secure maritime facilities and vessels. The process is simple:

  1. Bring documents proving your identity and, if necessary, your immigration status, to your nearest TWIC card enrollment center, like Test Smartly Labs of Lee’s Summit!
  2. Complete your TWIC Disclosure and Certification Form.
  3. Provide biographical information and a set of fingerprints.
  4. Have your photo taken.

After your application is submitted and processed, you’ll be notified by email or phone that your TWIC card is available for pick-up at Test Smartly Labs of Lee’s Summit. It takes approximately 6-8 weeks for TWIC cards to be issued after enrollment.
