Pennsylvania now permits people to change the gender marker on their driver’s license simply by completing a form. No doctor’s letter or other documentation is necessary.
This is particularly important to the non-binary and transgender communities who will have the option of having a gender-neutral “X” designation to choose from. This new policy was announced on July 23, 2020 by Pennsylvania Secretary of Transportation, Yassmin Gramian, who said PennDot wanted to have a simple process.
To effectuate the change, simply go to any PennDot driver’s license center, complete a simple form and pay a fee of $30.50. You will then receive a new driver’s license or photo identification card.
