REAL ID Mobile Verification Unit to visit ABE in October

 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 October 23rd or 24th.

ABE is hosting a 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 for October 23rd and 24th from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in the Aviator Room located on the second level of the main terminal at Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE).

“The Airport Authority is committed to ensuring our passengers understand the importance of REAL ID and making the resources available to obtain this document before it becomes a requirement for air travel in October 2020,” said Thomas R. Stoudt, Executive Director, Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority.

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:
