Confident Kentucky 

Schedule

Kentucky is opening KYTC Regional Driver Licensing Offices across the state to make new REAL ID compliant driving and identity credentials (as well as standard credentials) available to Kentuckians who prefer to use them for air travel and federal access benefits once enforcement begins October 1, 2021. Other federally approved documents, like a valid passport or passport card, are accepted for U.S. air travel.

In response to COVID-19, we are continually working to ensure a level of service that prioritizes the health and safety of our citizens. Here's what we're doing to keep you safe and what you should expect when you visit an office.

While we do our part to open offices as quickly as possible, 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.​​

KYTC Regional Driver Licensing Offices are open to in-person visits from any Kentucky resident. Schedule an appointment at one of our locations below.

Regional Driver's Licensing Offices are located in the following cities:​

 Note: Applicants must complete any written test requirements through KSP prior to scheduling an appointment with a Regional office.
