Important Update on REAL ID Enforcement

The Department of Homeland Security has announced that REAL ID enforcement will be postponed until May 3, 2023 due to the circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, standard Kentucky driver’s licenses will no longer be accepted for U.S. commercial air travel, to visit military bases or to visit federal buildings that require ID. Kentuckians will need a form of federally accepted ID to maintain these travel and access benefits. Sign up at realidky.com to get timely REAL ID and regional office updates sent straight to your phone or email.
