A Voluntary Travel ID is right for you. It complies with federal requirements to board U.S. domestic flights. As long as Kentucky is under an extension from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), you can continue to use your current, standard license. DHS will stop issuing extensions in October 2020 and at that point, a Voluntary Travel ID, or other federally accepted form of identification, will be needed.
