I have an i-485 in process and I have already received several i-797c Notice of Actions, and my appointment for biometrics. I need to go out of town and was wondering if it was possible to travel within the United States with only these notices and any form of identification?

Thank's for your responses

No problem at all, you only need a DL (or any other gov-issued ID) to travel by air or drive within US (if you're travelling by train or bus, you will not be asked to show ID).

If you were out of status when you submitted your I-485 then you should keep the I-797C receipt notice for your I-485 with you. It shows you are in a period of authorized stay while your I-485 is being adjudicated. Don't show it to anyone unless you're asked about your immigration status. TSA doesn't usually get involved in immigration, but if they discover that a passenger may be out of status then they may call CBP or ICE to investigate. This is more likely to happen if you present the TSA document checker with identification issued by a foreign government that appears questionable to them. For example, if you present a foreign passport that's worn out then the TSA document checker may look more closely at it to determine if it might be a fake (this is the TDC's primary job). If, in the course of that inspection, they discover that the traveler's period of admission appears to have expired then they may call CBP or ICE to come over from the international terminal and have a look. In that event, you'll be asked by the CBP or ICE agent to prove you are lawfully present. The receipt notice for the I-485 will work for this.

If you have unexpired identification issued by the US government then it would be better to use that.
