FAST Card is an initiative from the US Customs and Border Protection designed to expedite land crossing between Canada and the US for commercial truck drivers.
If you are a truck driver, an American or Canadian citizen, or a Permanent Resident of either country, you may be eligible for a Free And Secure Trade (FAST) Card.
A FAST Card is an identity document that allows you and your truck to be pre-cleared for customs when crossing the Canada-US border.
A FAST Card lets you make use of special FAST lanes at certain border crossings.

Do I need to renew my passport to keep my fast card? My passport is up for renewal but not my fast card and I use my fast card for work I’m a truck driver
You should renew your passport because not all CBSA and CBP agents may accept your FAST Card as a passport substitute.
Is there an American office to apply for a fast card at?
You have three options for applying for a FAST Card:
- Applying by mail directly to the CBSA in Niagara Falls, Ontario
- Applying online through the TTP website
- Applying through a third party.
You cannot apply in person directly with the government either in the USA or Canada.
I have a provincial record, but i am also 50% native with a blood quantum letter. I currently have charges I am dealing with but they are allegations and the court keep delaying it and not allowing me to deal with it. They are federal charges.. am i still able to get a FAST card for work purposes
Are we talking about charges or convictions? Your current charges may not affect your FAST Card eligibility (depending upon whether or not CBSA and CBP are aware of the charges) but previous convictions make you ineligible. It is on yo to prove that you have overcome your past criminality and certainly pending charges do not help. So normally we would say “No, you are not eligible for a FAST Card.”
The one wrinkle here is your blood quantum letter. Our understanding is that this letter essentially entitles you to legal status in both countries. It doesn’t resolve your criminal issue, but it may make you “admissible” for immigration purposes to the US despite your criminal record. The question then becomes, which is more important, that you’re admissible to the US under a very old treaty, or that you have a criminal record and would normally not be eligible for a FAST Card?
The only way you can know for sure is to apply for a FAST Card, as it’s up to the officers reviewing your case as to whether or not you get the card. I’d wait until you resolve these pending charges, though.
I need to update my passport and drivers license on my fast card

I have nexus car but what is a fast card
FAST stands for Free And Secure Trade but you can think of it like NEXUS for commercial truck drivers. FAST Card applicants are those drivers who plan to be crossing the border with commercial loads frequently. A FAST Card does not entitle you to NEXUS membership privileges.
can i get a fast card if i have over stayed my time in the u.s. and got a 5 year bar and have a valid waiver?
You can certainly apply.
Whether or not you are granted a FAST Card will depend upon whether or not US CBP thinks there is a chance of you overstaying again. It will be at the discretion of the officer and the only way you can find out is by applying.
However, we think your chances are slim.

Log in to your TTP account. After you have agreed to the terms, there should be an option to activate the card by entering information from the card into the webpage.
