KYTC Regional Driver Licensing Office in Elizabethtown opening
By Chuck Wolfe
Frankfort, KY - Gov. Andy Beshear on Thursday announced the opening of a Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Regional Driver Licensing Office in Elizabethtown.
It brings to seven the number of KYTC regional offices newly opened or reopened to handle licensing needs while adhering to Gov. Beshear's Healthy at Work guidelines to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).
"We are offering essential, in-person public services while taking care to do so in a way that protects public health," said Gov. Beshear. "Essential services include issuing, renewing and replacing operator's licenses and official identification cards for our fellow Kentuckians who depend on them for employment, travel and emergencies."
Even as KYTC regional offices reopen, the Governor encouraged anyone who can renew or replace credentials by mail or drop-off to do so. Those whose licenses, permits or ID cards were lost or expired - or will expire - any time from March 1 through Sept. 30, 2020 and who do not require testing may apply for renewal or replacement remotely through the circuit court clerk in their county of residence. Check with the clerk as to preferred method, such as drop-off form or mail-in form. The forms can be downloaded here: https://kycourts.gov/Pages/DLreopeningplan.aspx.
Gov. Beshear also reminded Kentuckians that licenses and permits that expired March 18 through July 6, 2020 were automatically extended 90 days beyond the printed expiration date.
In-person services at the KYTC Regional Driver Licensing Office in Elizabethtown are limited at this time to the following:
"With the new office in Elizabethtown, we are expanding an important customer service," KYTC Secretary Jim Gray said. "But we are doing so in a way that protects the health and safety of our customers and our employees. That includes social distancing, wearing face masks and having a sanitized work station for every customer."
The Regional Driver Licensing Office in Elizabethtown is at 1055 North Mulberry Street. It will be open Monday through Friday from 8amET to 4pmET.
Qualifying applicants may make appointments online at drive.ky.gov. A limited number of workstations will be available to serve walk-ins. To avoid gatherings in common waiting areas after checking in, applicants may be asked to wait in their vehicles and will be individually notified when to return to the issuance office to be served.
To maintain the safest possible environment, office employees and customers will adhere to Gov. Beshear's Healthy at Work standards, which include wearing a mask. Social distancing will be observed. Surfaces will be cleaned and touch pad equipment sanitized after each use. The complete list of Healthy at Work requirements can be found here Healthy at Work.
