​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Kentucky is opening Driver Licensing Regional 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 May 3, 2023. Other federally approved documents, like a valid passport or passport card, are accepted for U.S. air travel.

- Online and mail-in license renewal are now available. Visit our compare my options tool to determine which option best fits your needs.

- A Popup Driver Licensing Pilot Program will be available in select counties beginning in 2022. This program offers all the services of a Driver Licensing Regional Office in counties that don’t have one. Applicants must schedule an appointment below. Click here to learn more about the program. Sign-up For Popup Notifications​

- Avoid a repeat trip by arriving prepared. Learn what documents you need to bring by taking the  IDocument Guide quiz or review a list of acceptable documents.

​- Masks must be worn while inside a Driver Licensing Regional Office, regardless of vaccination status. We appreciate your assistance. Documented medical conditions that prohibit an individual from wearing a mask will be granted an exception.

- Driver Licensing Regional Offices are open to in-person visits from any Kentucky resident.

- Appointments are highly suggested, as limited space for walk-ins differs from site to site.

- Check this page or follow us on Twitter (drivekygov or realidky), Facebook (drive.ky.gov or realidky), or Instagram (drive.ky or realidky) before visiting an office to ensure it is open.

- The Kentucky State Police perform all written and driver testing. Click here to visit their website and schedule an appointment.
