Beginning October 1, 2020, only people with a Voluntary Travel ID, which is Kentucky’s version of the REAL ID, will be allowed to board domestic flights, visit military bases and federal buildings.

Traditional driver’s licenses will still be available in circuit court clerk’s offices.

Residents applying for a Voluntary Travel ID card must present valid proof of identity, social security number and two valid proofs of residency.

Officials say the Frankfort driver’s license headquarters can not help applicants who require testing or re-testing. They also say only debit and credit cards are acceptable forms of payment.
