PennDOT will use existing photos for license renewals

Staff Report

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has announced it will now use existing photos on file for customers who renew their driver's license and identification cards.

Using existing photos will help limit the number of customers in the driver and photo licensing centers due to the COVID-19 outbreak, PennDOT said in a news release.

All customers who renew their license or ID card online or through the mail will receive a product with the most current photo available in PennDOT's system.

Individuals who renewed their license on or before May 10 will receive a camera card in the mail and will still have to visit a licensing center to obtain an updated photo. Expiration dates on these cards have been extended until June 30.
