Department of Homeland Security Extends REAL ID Enforcement Grace Period for PA

Thursday, October 12, 2017 @ 12:10 AM

Posted by Dylan Cyphert

wolfHARRISBURG, Pa. – The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced a REAL ID enforcement grace period through January 22, 2018, which means that Pennsylvania residents will not face access issues when entering federal facilities through at least that date.

[Pictured above: On March 26, 2017, Governor Tom Wolf signed Senate Bill 133 inside the Harrisburg International Airport. SB 133, known as the Pennsylvania REAL ID Compliance Act (Act 3 of 2017), will allow Pennsylvania to offer residents an optional REAL ID-compliant driver license or state identification card, which can be used to access airports, and federal facilities.]

This grace period goes into effect on Wednesday, October 11, and applies to jurisdictions currently under compliance extensions set to expire today, October 10. In addition to Pennsylvania, there are 29 total jurisdictions with October 10 extension expirations.

PennDOT submitted an extension request to DHS in early September and is currently awaiting DHS response.

The enforcement grace period applies only to entrance to federal facilities. There is no enforcement on commercial air travel until January 22, 2018.

PennDOT has begun work on the implementation of REAL ID and estimates REAL ID-compliant driver licenses and identification cards will be available at the customer’s option in March 2019. This will allow ample time for customers who want a REAL ID product to get one before the final DHS effective date of October 1, 2020.

Information on REAL ID in Pennsylvania, including frequently asked questions is available at www.dmv.pa.gov.
