Federal enforcement of the REAL ID Act will begin at airports and secure federal facilities nationwide in less than a year. Starting October 1st, 2020, you must have a federally-accepted form of identification (such as a Pennsylvania REAL ID driver’s license or identification card, or a U.S. passport/passport card or military ID) to board a commercial flight (including domestic flights) or visit a secure federal building that requires ID at the door. Since March, more than 400,000 Pennsylvanians have chosen to get a REAL ID-compliant product. Based on data from other states, PennDOT anticipates that approximately 1.3 million of its customers will get a REAL ID before the federal enforcement deadline.
