Pennsylvania Resumes Issuing REAL IDs
Pennsylvania is again issuing REAL IDs at reopened Driver License Centers through the Commonwealth.
The program had been paused during the outbreak of the pandemic.
The federal law affects how states issue driver licenses and identification cards to be accepted for federal purposes such as access to federal buildings and flying.
Federal enforcement, however has been put off for a year and is now set to begin October 1, 2021. PennDOT resumed the service last week.
The cost of renewing a photo ID in Pennsylvania is $31.50.
Those wanting a REAL ID must produce proof of identity including an original or certified birth certificate or unexpired U-S Passport, proof of social security number, two proofs of current, physical address and proof of ALL name changes, including all married or legal name changes. That means a person may need to produce one or more certified marriage certificates.
For more information, visit the PennDOT Driver and Vehicle Services website. Or visit one of 12 REAL ID Centers and receive the document over the counter at the time of service.
