HARRISBURG –Rep. Zach Mako (R-Lehigh/Northampton) has announced he will host a REAL ID Mobile Verification Unit on Thursday, March 14, from 5-8 p.m. to assist residents of the 183rd Legislative District with having their required documents pre-verified.

The event will be held at the Allen Township Fire Hall, 3530 Howertown Road, Northampton.

“Last legislative session, we passed a law creating a federally accepted optional PennDOT REAL ID,” Mako said. “Beginning on Oct. 2, 2020, in order to board a domestic commercial flight or enter a secure federal building, a visitor must present a federally accepted form of identification. The PennDOT REAL ID or a valid U.S. passport meets this requirement. In order to assist my interested constituents in acquiring a REAL ID, I am offering this event. As a reminder, this program is optional, and PennDOT will continue to offer existing driver’s licenses and photo IDs.”

Participants should bring their required REAL ID documentation to the event, and PennDOT staff will scan the documents to a person’s driver record and mark it as “REAL ID Eligible.” Customers then can apply online, pay the applicable fees, and it will be mailed to them directly within 10 business days. Documents required are proof of identity (original or certified copy of a birth certificate with a raised seal or valid U.S. passport); Social Security card; proof of all legal name changes (state or county marriage certificate or court order); and two proofs of current Pennsylvania physical address (current, unexpired Pennsylvania license or ID, vehicle registration card or a no more than 90-day-old bank statement). For a complete list on all required documentation or to RSVP, please visit RSVPs also can be made by calling the Slatington office at 610-760-9805.

The 183rd District includes South Whitehall (part), Washington and Whitehall (part) townships and Slatington Borough in Lehigh County. It also consists of Allen, Lehigh and Moore (part) townships, and North Catasauqua, Northampton and Walnutport boroughs in Northampton County.
