STAR ID 

(Click picture for more information)

As you know, Oct. 1, 2020, is the federal deadline for REAL ID-compliant identification to board commercial domestic flights and to enter certain federal facilities. We are working to ensure those who may need STAR IDs (our state’s version of REAL ID) have ample time to obtain one prior to October of next year.

Lori Jhons of Governor Kay Ivey’s staff shared a link to the Blount County Probate website featuring the Governor’s STAR ID message. (See below.)  In addition, we have attached the latest version of the STAR ID flier with details concerning first issuance. The Covington County Probate Office will still continue to offer drivers license renewals and duplicates. For the STAR ID, You must visit the driver's license examiners office located on the right outside of the Court house.

 

Here are those links:
