Mail-in renewal for licenses to be permanent
By Naitore Djigbenou/Chuck Wolfe
Frankfort, KY - Gov. Beshear today announced the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) will launch a service this Friday to expand options for Kentuckians to renew their state driver's licenses and ID cards remotely through a mail-in renewal program.
"This new era of driver licensing is ushering in expanded services to give Kentuckians more options on how they want to be served," Gov. Beshear said. "The mail-in program builds upon the successful summer launch of Kentucky's first online driver's license renewal service. Both services maximize convenience by helping the majority of cardholders tackle an important to-do on their own time without visiting a licensing office."
The revamped mail-in service is administered solely by KYTC and is one of the modern conveniences available to Kentuckians as a result of the phased transfer of licensing services to KYTC Driver Licensing Regional Offices from local Offices of the Circuit Court Clerks. All counties will transfer services by June 30, 2022. A list of counties that have transferred services to regional offices is available at drive.ky.gov/pages/circuit-clerks.aspx.
"Kentucky is bringing back a better, permanent version of the mail-in in program that was temporarily offered during most of 2020 to limit COVID-19 exposure at our driver licensing regional offices," KYTC Secretary Jim Gray said. "The mail-in program is the only renewal service KYTC offers that allows cardholders to do the following tasks remotely: replace a lost or stolen card, update a mailing address, and pay by check. As we look to modernize licensing, we recognize some Kentuckians prefer to do business in multiple ways and this service caters to our diverse population."
The mail-in program offers the following services:
Kentuckians now have three options to renew credentials: online, by mail or in person. A list of services offered through each renewal method, as well as more details about the mail-in program, will be available tomorrow at drive.ky.gov.
Kentuckians who have a Kentucky REAL ID and are due to renew may do so through the mail-in or online renewal services.
The mail-in renewal option does not apply to:
