A: Kentucky is advancing the process of issuing driver's license, permit and personal ID cards in an effort to improve the security of state-issued credentials and comply with federal standards. The 2005 REAL ID Act changes state requirements and procedures for the issuance of identity credentials accepted by select federal agencies, including the Transportation Security Administration. Starting Oct. 1, 2020, Kentucky’s current and new standard credentials will no longer be accepted for U.S. air travel or entering restricted federal facilities, like military bases, nuclear power plants or the White House. A phased, statewide rollout of the new credentials and changes will begin in early 2019 and be complete by spring.
A: Current licenses, permits and IDs will remain valid until their expiration date. Once new credentials are available in your county of residence, you do not need to replace your current card with a new version unless:
Your card is within its renewal window (6 months prior to the card’s expiration date)
Your name, address or gender changes
You would like a Voluntary Travel ID and your card's renewal window does not allow you to renew prior to Oct. 1, 2020 when federal enforcement begins
A: Applicants who desire a Voluntary Travel ID and have a credential with a renewal window that does not allow them to renew prior to Oct. 1, 2020 may apply by presenting their current license, permit or ID at the Circuit Court Clerk office in their county of residence, bringing in the required documentation and sitting for a new photo. The applicant will pay $15 to upgrade to a Voluntary Travel ID credential that maintains their current credential’s expiration date. If an applicant’s current license, permit or ID has a renewal window that allows them to renew prior to Oct. 1, 2020, they should apply during that window.
