PHILADELPHIA – You have exactly a year remaining to get a REAL ID if you so wish, according to Keith Brune, Chief Operating Officer with Philadelphia International Airport. 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 flight or entering a federal building that requires federally acceptable REAL ID upon entry. There is no requirement that any resident obtain a REAL ID. PennDOT continues to offer standard-issue driver’s licenses and photo IDs. To date, PennDOT has issued about 1.6 million REAL ID products.
