PENNDOT Finally prepares for “real id” act to begin in 2019

PennDOT is encouraging you to take steps now to prepare you for when REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and ID cards are available.

The new licenses won’t be available until the spring of 2019, but PennDOT suggests you begin gathered several required documents including:

-Proof of Identity (via an original or certified copy of a birth certificate or valid U.S. passport)

-Social Security number (via social security card)

-Proof of all legal name changes

-Two proofs of current address

The reason PennDOT has to switch to a Pennsylvania READ ID driver’s license or ID card is because of new federal regulations. These new types of ID will have to be used to board a commercial flight or visit a secure federal building beginning in October 2020.
