REAL ID (Ky. Voluntary Travel ID) Update
From the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet:
Kentucky is creating REAL ID regional driver’s license offices across the state to make new REAL ID-compliant driving and identity credentials available to Kentuckians who prefer to use them for travel and access benefits. Other federally approved documents, such as a valid passport or passport card, are accepted for U.S. air travel.
Residents from all 120 counties are welcome to apply for a REAL ID license, permit or identification card at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) in Frankfort (200 Mero St., 40601).
REAL ID regional driver’s license offices are open in the following counties (click HERE) and are currently equipped to best serve residents of the county where the office is based. The capacity will expand this spring to serve the region, and more offices will open across the state before the October enforcement date.
The most important thing you can do to save time and avoid repeat trips when applying is to get prepared. To learn what required documents you need to update and gather now, take the IDocument Guide quiz or review a list of acceptable documents.
