Non-military visitors will first stop at the Visitor Control Center just outside Sherman Gate. State-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards from IL, NM, MO, WA and MN can no longer be used to obtain a visitor’s pass because those cards don’t comply with federal standards. Visitors who are accompanied in the vehicle by a Defense Department card holder can continue to access the installations using any state’s driver’s license. Accepted forms of identification for granting a base visitor’s pass include a U.S. passport, any official ID card from any of the compliant states, Native American tribal documents and any Defense Department or federal ID card. VA identification cards, however, are not accepted. After leaving the Visitor Control Center, turn right on Metropolitan to 7th St. Right on 7th to Grant Gate, the Main Gate onto Fort Leavenworth.
