Pennsylvania Driver License Laws
Per Pennsylvania's stop and identify law, people who reside in Pennsylvania must provide some form of photo identification to law enforcement, if they are being legally detained. For this reason, it's always a good idea to carry some form of photo identification at all times. This form of ID can be: a drivers license, learners permit, or a state identification (ID) card. All three of these forms of identification are issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Motor Vehicles (PA DMV).
Pennsylvania Identification Cards are used for identification only. You can NOT use this card for driving privileges. An ID card can be issued to persons age ten years old or older. In Pennsylvania, you may hold both a drivers license and an identification card.
For drivers who have moved to Pennsylvania, you are required to get a Pennsylvania drivers license within 60 days. Although Pennsylvania does not require drivers with a valid drivers license (or a drivers license that has been expired for six months or less) from another state to take a written drivers license test, those with invalid licenses or those who have been expired for more than six months will be required to take the written test.
