REAL ID is a federal law that affects how states issue driver's licenses and ID cards if they are going to be acceptable for federal purposes, such as boarding a domestic commercial flight, or entering a military installation or federal facility that requires ID. Beginning October 1, 2020, Pennsylvanians will need a REAL ID-compliant license, identification card, or another form of federally acceptable identification (such as a valid passport or military ID) to:
· Board domestic commercial flights.
· Enter a military base.
· Enter a federal facility that requires ID at the door.
