REAL ID and Domestic Flights

You might need a passport for DOMESTIC flights!

January 22, 2018 is the date that travelers from 9 states, including Pennsylvania, will no longer be able to use their driver's licenses as a means of identification for TSA under the REAL ID Act.  This means that the air traveler will need to use a Passport as their form of ID, or find another method of transportation to use.

Pennsylvania has applied for an extension past that date, so that they can develop the technology and put equipment in place at the Department of Motor Vehicles to produce the "enhanced" license that will be required by TSA.  As of today, the extension has not yet been granted.   Note:  There will be an additional charge for the enhanced driver's license and the traveler will need to request it specifically since both the normal and enhanced will be available.
