Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced the Department of Homeland Security has postponed the enforcement date for Real ID from Oct. 1, 2020 to Oct. 1, 2021, in response to COVID-19 and the national emergency declaration.

PennDOT closed all driver and photo license centers on March 16 and paused Real ID issuance in the state out of an abundance of caution and in the interest of public health. Centers will reopen no sooner than April 3. PennDOT also sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, requesting the agency consider extending the October 2020 deadline.
