PennDOT to roll out gender-neutral driver’s license option

Pennsylvanians who prefer not to be identified as male or female will soon have a gender-neutral option on their state-issued driver’s licenses. PennDOT expects to have the new procedure in place by the middle of next year. It will let motorists use “X? as a third option to indicate gender. A PennDOT spokeswoman says the agency is able to make the change on its own and doesn’t need authorization from the Republican-controlled Legislature. Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf says PennDOT made the decision but it’s consistent with his opinions about equity and fairness.
