UPDATE AS OF 9/23/19

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), who is the issuing authority of Kentucky license and ID cards, recently launched a pilot program in two counties issuing REAL ID.  The pilot approach was necessary to test the performance and operation of the new issuance system prior to launching REAL ID in Circuit Clerk's offices statewide. 


The pilot program revealed that the new issuance system will not be sustainable for Circuit Clerk's offices, therefore REAL ID compliant license and ID cards  WILL NOT be issued in any Circuit Clerk's office in Kentucky.

KYTC is going to assume all responsibility for issuing REAL ID license and ID cards by opening regional facilities across Kentucky.  There is no timeline of when these facilities will be open statewide but KYTC is currently making efforts to quickly develop and execute a plan that is in the best interest of the citizens of Kentucky.

Until KYTC opens these facilities across the state, Circuit Clerk's offices will continue to issue the current Kentucky license and ID cards that you have always obtained from our offices.  Once a facility is opened here locally, KYTC will take over all card issuance and you will no longer visit your local Circuit Clerk's office for a license or ID.

All license and ID cards issued in Circuit Clerk's offices will remain good until expiration; however, they will no longer be an acceptable form of identification after OCTOBER 1, 2020 to board a domestic flight, enter a military base or a federal facility.  KYTC hopes to be issuing the new license and ID cards statewide before that deadline however, it is strongly recommended that if you need a form of identification for the purposes listed above, you should apply for a passport.
