Starting Oct. 1, the new driver’s licenses that comply with a federal travel law will be needed to board domestic flights or enter U.S. military bases.

People without a Real ID after that date will have to show another form of identification, such as a passport.

Officials say the Madisonville office will serve all Kentuckians regardless of where they live.

The state previously opened Real ID licensing offices in Frankfort, Bowling Green, Paducah and Somerset.
