Sep. 14, 2018 /

As most of you know, following the events of Sept. 11, 2001, the federal government put into action a more secure form of identification, known as REAL ID, for Americans seeking to fly domestically and/or enter certain federal buildings. Full implementation of the new requirements will go into effect on Oct. 1, 2020. Although Pennsylvania is among the last of the states to make REAL ID available, PennDOT is preparing to offer the new identification starting in March 2019. Getting a REAL ID is optional. There is no requirement that any resident obtain a REAL ID, and PennDOT will continue to offer standard-issue driver licenses and photo IDs.
