HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is now issuing REAL IDs in Henderson County.

According to a Facebook post from the Henderson County Detention Center, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is working to switch residents of the county over to REAL IDs.

They say people can now schedule appointments at the temporary office at the Henderson County Detention Center. It will issue regular driver’s licenses and REAL IDs with driver’s testing estimated to begin in the next few weeks.

Jailer Amy Brady says she’s been looking forward to this day for over two years now.

“This allows residents of Henderson County to go ahead and push forward to get their REAL IDs without traveling to Daviess County or Hopkins County,” Brady says. “We’re doing what we can to help citizens in Henderson County.”

Brady also says the permanent office is still set to open by the end of July.
