Real ID

Real ID has come to PA.   

Beginning October 1, 2020, Pennsylvanians will need a 

REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, photo ID card, or another form of federally-acceptable identification (such as a valid passport or military ID) to board a domestic commercial flight or enter a federal building or military installation that requires ID.  

Make sure you REQUEST REAL ID when you change your license over to PA.  Not doing so could result in getting a license that you cannot use for travel or getting into Federal buildings.
