The state faces a deadline to upgrade the security of driver’s licenses. Starting Oct. 1, Kentuckians without a Real ID-compliant license or passport will not be able to board domestic flights, visit a military base or enter some federal buildings.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet already provides the licenses at regional offices in Frankfort and Bowling Green.
