Default Internal flight ID quick q

hello
ive confused myself so someone can confirm or give advice

I have my Green Card now ()
Im taking an internal flight in a few weeks...my UK passport is in my maiden name, Green Card in married name

Husband says i only need Green Card as ID for internal flight. Green Card is in married name and he will book tickets in married name
Is he correct or do i need to book in maiden name, take passport as ID and marriage cert

any advice appreciated!!!!

You can use your greencard as ID or more commonly your state drivers license.

I tried to use my green card at IAH for an internal flight last year and was met by "What's this? What state is this from? [thinking it was a DL] I haven't seen one of these before." - he refused to accept it. Instead of confusing him even further with my corner-clipped (for renewal) DL I used my UK passport.

Avoid confusion and just use your state drivers' license.

Shouldn't take more than 30 minutes out of your schedule, including traveling to the DMV and back home, to get one

Hi thanks for the advice. In CA I have to do a written theory test first then book a practical test. Im going to have a read of the handbook this week so at least get the theory out of the way - hopefully I'll pass

We are not going till 24 Aug so I might well have taken my practical test - and passed by then!!

I just want to cover all eventualities in case the driving ID doesnt work out time wise

Icky. I did it all in one go: vision, computer, car. "Written" test was on a computer, driving test was in the wife's car, a newish Toyota Matrix automatic. Seemed a safer bet than using my 87 VW Scirocco 5speed. It upsets people

I thought the CA driving test questions were quite hard and tricky actually, though still passed first time.

The driving test was a freaking nightmare just as I had some f---ker step out in front of me and I had to slam the brakes on, and thought I had failed. This was in San Clemente where the beach is and people dont even look to cross a street.

I didnt fail though. Presumably you have to kill someone to fail LOL.

I think that guy was a hired stuntman. My tester sent me through a residential neighborhood and what do you know, a sight I had never seen before in that town: several children playing on the sidewalk, one bicycle, one ball, and a couple of adults on the porch. "Awww c'mon, admit it, the DPS hired these kids to play there, didn't you?" The tester didn't deny it, but smiled. Hmmm...

Certainly out of your control, right?
