The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has launched a service that allows people to new both their driver's and motorcycle licenses online, Gov. Andy Beshear said Monday.
“This is a dramatic step forward for customer convenience – the ability to go online to renew your driving credential and save yourself a trip to a licensing office if you don’t otherwise require in-person service,” Beshear said in a news release. “Modernizing state services puts Kentuckians in the driver’s seat to choose how they want to be served and make a Better Kentucky.”
State officials said online license renewal is among the new modern conveniences and options available to Kentuckians as a result of the phased transfer of licensing services to KYTC regional offices from local Offices of the Circuit Court Clerks.
All counties are required to have made the transition by June 30, 2022, and 20 already have done so.
The online renewal option is for holders of standard-issue or REAL ID licenses whose credentials will expire within six months – or have been expired for less than a year- and want to maintain the same card version as their current license (standard or REAL ID).
The online option is not available for the upgrade from a standard ID to a REAL ID or any of these other reasons:
-License replacement (lost/stolen cards)
-Upgrading from four-year to eight-year expiration
-Those needing a license with changed name or address
-Commercial driver’s licenses (CDL)
