Kentucky is Fully Compliant with REAL ID Regulations

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced this week that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has determined the state is fully compliant with REAL ID Act regulations following the pilot launch of new driver’s licenses, permits and IDs in Franklin and Woodford counties.

The designation serves as the state’s last necessary extension, and allows Kentuckians to use their current state driver’s license and the new standard credential to board domestic flights and visit military bases until federal enforcement begins October 1st, 2020.

A phased, county-by-county rollout will begin after the pilot period ends. Dates will be updated on the here as the rollout approaches in each county.
