State’s REAL I-D’s Won’t Be Available Until 2019, But PennDOT Urges Preparation

November 30, 2017
By

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has officially announced what state officials had already been telling the media – that the state will not have federally-compliant REAL-ID driver’s licenses and identification cards available until the spring of 2019.

But, PennDOT is urging state residents to begin their preparations in making sure the proper identifying documents are available and doing any needed paperwork.

As of a future point, REAL-ID licenses or cards will be among the requirements for boarding a commercial airline flight or visiting a secure federal building.  PennDOT will need to verify proof of identity, social security number and all legal name changes, plus have two forms of proof of a resident’s current physical address.

You may need to start now in locating some documents.  PennDOT says it takes up to six months for some states to process duplicate birth certificates.

Beginning in March, 2018, residents may phone a PennDOT call center, or go on line to their website to request confirmation that PennDOT has all documentation on file.  You should also be able to receive verification, starting next September, at a PennDOT driver’s license center.

When it comes time to actually receive your REAL-ID verification, you will pay a one-time $30 fee.  Like current Pennsylvania driver’s licenses,  REAL-ID would need to renewed every four years.
