State Rep. Barb Gleim, R-Carlisle, will host a Real ID informational event in April at Carlisle Fire & Rescue, 177 Carlisle Springs Road.
The event, which starts at 6:30 p.m. April 4, will include an informational presentation by PennDOT representatives for residents who want to learn more about the Real ID program or who have questions about it.
“The Real ID program is complex and the details are sometimes confusing,” Gleim said in a news release Tuesday. “This event will be a great opportunity for residents who are interested in a Real ID to get more information about the program, what it is useful for, weigh their options and decide if a Real ID is right for them.”
By October 2020, Pennsylvania driver’s licenses will no longer be an accepted form of identification for commercial flights or entering a federal facility, like a military base. PennDOT this year began issuing Real ID licenses and identification cards that can be used once Pennsylvania’s requested extension period is over.
To receive a Real ID-approved identification, residents have to provide certain documents that prove a person’s identity and lawful status, Social Security number, Pennsylvania residency and legal name, date of birth and/or gender designation change.
Gleim said her sponsored event will not have representatives there to pre-verify any documents nor issue Real IDs. This will be an informational session only.
The event is free and there is no need to register or RSVP.
