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.
In response to COVID-19, we are continually working to ensure a service level that prioritizes our citizens' health and safety. 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 prepare. To learn what required documents you need to update and gather now, take the IDocument Guide quiz or review a list of acceptable documents.
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.
