HARRISBURG – PennDOT said a new state law will provide opportunity for homeless Pennsylvanians to be issued a free ID card. Act 131 of 2020, recently signed into law by Gov. Wolf, allows for homeless Pennsylvanians to apply in person at a PennDOT Driver License Center and meet requirements for the ID. Information can be found at dmv.pa.gov. That part of the law is effective January 25. Act 131 also will allow eligible individuals to use bioptic telescope lenses to help them to qualify for and obtain a driver’s license. Bioptic telescope lenses are used in at least 28 other states and are designed to help individuals meet visual acuity standards. PennDOT will implement that program on September 27, 2021. Act 131 also updates requirements and restrictions for CDL holders, including reporting requirements for convictions and violations. It will include a lifetime disqualification from operating a commercial motor vehicle for human trafficking convictions.
