Sec. § 507.001
Concealed Handgun License As Valid Proof of Identification


A person may not deny the holder of a concealed handgun license issued under Subchapter H, Chapter 411 (Department of Public Safety of the State of Texas), Government Code, access to goods, services, or facilities, except as provided by Section 521.460 (Motor Vehicle Rentals), Transportation Code, or in regard to the operation of a motor vehicle, because the holder has or presents a concealed handgun license rather than a driver’s license or other acceptable form of personal identification.


This section does not affect:


the requirement under Section 411.205 (Requirement to Display License), Government Code, that a person subject to that section present a driver’s license or identification certificate in addition to a concealed handgun license; or


the types of identification required under federal law to access airport premises or pass through airport security.
