REAL ID Mobile Verification Unit to visit ABE on January 14th
(Hanover Township, PA) – Will you need a REAL ID for air travel? Get an early start on the verification process and eliminate your trip to a PennDOT Driver’s License Center by visiting Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) on January 14th.
ABE is hosting another REAL ID Mobile Verification Unit (also known as a REAL ID Pop-Up), which allows customers to pre-verify for REAL ID without visiting a PennDOT Driver License Center. PennDOT staff will scan the required documents to a particular driver’s record and mark it as “REAL ID Eligible.”
The REAL ID Mobile Verification Unit is scheduled from 2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the Aviator Room located on the second level of the Main Terminal at ABE.
Once REAL ID’s are available in March 2019, customers can apply for their REAL ID online, pay the applicable fees, and it will be mailed to them directly within 10 business days. PennDOT is required to verify original versions or certified copies of the documents listed below:
- Proof of Identity – Examples: Original or certified copy of a birth certificate with raised seal; valid U.S. Passport or Passport Card, etc.
- Proof of Social Security Number – Original social security card (cannot be laminated or sealed in plastic)
