Confident Kentucky
Be confident you’ll arrive prepared to request your license, permit or personal ID by using the IDocument Guide interactive tool. Answer a few short questions to create a personalized list of documents you can bring when you apply for a REAL ID credential once available at a regional licensing office, or a first-time standard (non REAL ID-compliant) credential at your local Circuit Court Clerk’s office.
