A new regional driver licensing office is opening in Kentucky and will be the only in-person driver licensing site in Fayette County. WUKY's Josh James reports.

The office is intended to further expand access to Real ID-compliant licenses and identification cards, which will be required in October 2021 for flying and some other activities. The office is operated by the state Transportation Cabinet. The cabinet says other regional driver licensing offices operate with local circuit court clerk offices, but all Fayette County residents who need standard licenses, permits and ID cards or renewals will apply at the new regional office.

Josh James fell in love with college radio at Western Kentucky University's student station, New Rock 92 (now Revolution 91.7). After working as a DJ and program director, he knew he wanted to come home to Lexington and try his hand in public radio.
