HARRISBURG – Senators Ryan P. Aument (R-36) and Scott Martin (R-13) will host a free informational seminar in Manheim Township on February 12 regarding the state’s new REAL ID driver’s license and photo identification option.
State-issued driver’s licenses and photo ID cards will be required to meet more stringent security standards beginning on October 1 as part of the federal REAL ID law. After that time, current photo identification cards will not be accepted as valid identification for accessing federal facilities, including courthouses and prisons, and boarding commercial aircraft.
REAL ID is optional for state residents. New REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and photo ID cards are available for purchase now. The seminar will include information on how community residents can purchase a REAL ID.
REAL IDs will not be issued at this event; the seminar is for informational purposes only. In addition, local officials will be available at the seminar to offer assistance with marriage certificates and birth certificates. Duplicate marriage certificates can be printed on site, and assistance will be available for duplicate birth certificate applications as well.
The seminar will be held at the Lancaster Airport Terminal, located at 500 Airport Road. Presentations will be held beginning at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Space is limited, so community residents are strongly encouraged to register in advance on the Senators’ websites, www.senatoraument.com and www.senatorscottmartinpa.com. Questions can be directed to the Senators’ district offices by calling 717-627-0036 (Aument) or 717-397-1309 (Martin).
