PennDOT Reminds Customers of Updates to Identification Products and REAL ID Deadline

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) reminds Pennsylvania residents that, as part of ongoing security enhancements, PennDOT is updating the design and enhancing the security features of its driver license and identification card products and urges residents who are renewing their products to decide if they will need a REAL ID before the federal enforcement deadline of May 3, 2023.

"PennDOT remains vigilant in taking proactive measures to mitigate fraud, such as identity theft, by updating our security features regularly," PennDOT Deputy Secretary Kurt Myers said.

PennDOT began piloting the new products at the Summerdale Driver License Center in Enola on September 12, 2022. Since then, another 15 locations have started issuing the new products. All driver license and photo centers statewide will transition to the new products by mid-November 2022. The new products will be phased in during renewal cycles and will replace existing products. Both current and new card designs will be in circulation during the transition period.

Speakers Include:
Deputy Secretary Kurt Myers
Risk Management Director Brent Lawson
REAL ID Director Sarah Baker
