19.04 - rtl8812au-dkms installed but not appearing as module

I installed the rtl8812au driver via apt and installation seems to be successful. The device is a USB-wifi dongle that is recognized by lsusb

lsusb
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:a811 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8811AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter

But not by iwconfig.

DKMS sees the driver.

 $ dkms status | grep rtl
   rtl8812au, 4.3.8.12175.20140902+dfsg, 5.0.0-13-generic, x86_64: installed
   rtl8812au, 4.3.8.12175.20140902+dfsg, 5.0.0-15-generic, x86_64: installed

But the driver does not appear as a module :

  lsmod | grep rtl
  btrtl                  20480  1 btusb
  bluetooth             557056  73 
  btrtl,hidp,btintel,btbcm,bnep,btusb,rfcomm

Where else can I look for this issue?
