In my experience, you need to show your passport AND driver’s license at security checkpoints. My passport is still in my maiden name, but I still have a valid driver’s license with my maiden name on it too. I have a paper update card that I do not show.

No, if I have my passport, I have never had to show my license. My license is updated with my new name and my passport still has my maiden name. Your passport just has to match the name on the ticket.

I haven’t changed my passport yet, and we are going on a cruise this Dec, so I was told that as long as my passport matches my travel docs them I’m good

They don’t have to match, just only show the one that’s relevant.

If you’re traveling internationally, you don’t really need your driver’s license, and vice versa. As the PP said, just make sure that whatever document you’re using as your travel ID matches the name on your ticket!

Your passport just needs to match your travel docs.  You driver’s license doesn’t really mean much internationally.  I travel abroad quite a lot and have never had to show both.  In fact, I rarely even bring my DL if I’m traveling abroad.

As long as the middle initial matches the middle name, I don’t see a problem. Some drivers licenses can only fit so many letters–it doesn’t mean its not your name just because it won’t fit.
