Pennsylvania drivers will have the option to show a third designation – a gender-neutral “X” – instead of either “M” (male) or “F” (female) on their licenses.
For individuals who identify as gender non-binary or transgender, the designation offers an option that is not exclusively male or female.
The current paper form, DL-32 – Request for Gender Change on Driver’s License/Identification Card (7-19), shows only two check boxes, Male and Female, and must be signed by a licensed medical or social service provider: physician, CRNP, therapist/counselor, or social worker.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is in the process of updating its computer systems, forms, and employee training to allow customers to choose the “X” designation.
For individuals requesting REAL IDs, Pennsylvania licenses will continue to comply with federal REAL ID requirements, regardless of gender designation.
