REAL ID in Pennsylvania

Beginning October 1, 2020, Pennsylvanians will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, photo ID card, or another form of federally-acceptable identification (such as a valid passport or military ID) to board a domestic commercial flight or enter a federal building or military installation that requires ID.

REAL IDs are now available to Pennsylvanians who want them. This guide will help you decide if you need a REAL ID, and provide information on what documents you will need and steps you can take to get an optional REAL ID.

Pennsylvanians can take necessary documentation for REAL ID to any PennDOT driver license center for pre-verification.

Pre-verification of documents will allow residents to apply for their REAL ID online when available in March 2019
