Pennsylvania State ID and Licenses

Pennsylvania State ID

We recommend that students obtain a Pennsylvania State ID.

Pennsylvania State ID is a photo identification card that is issued to any Pennsylvania resident who is at least 10 years of age.

Beginning May 3, 2023, Pennsylvanians will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license, photo ID card, or another form of federally-acceptable identification (such as a valid passport or military ID) to board a domestic commercial flight or enter a federal building or military installation that requires ID.

Benefits of having a Pennsylvania State ID:

• You will not be required to carry your passport while traveling within the U.S.

• Pennsylvania State ID will have your birth date on it, which is not present on the Bryn Mawr OneCard.

Driver’s License

A Driver’s License can serve as Photo Identification Card as well. An initial Learner's Permit is issued to any individual, 16 years of age or older, who has never been licensed to operate a vehicle, a new resident who has never been licensed, or a new resident who has been licensed in another state but whose driver license has been expired longer than 6 months.
