Where to Get Your Driver's License is Changing Come Sept. 27th
It’s a new era for driver licensing in Kentucky! Starting Sept. 27, 2021, residents of Boone County will visit any Driver Licensing Regional Office, instead of the Office of the Circuit Court Clerk in their county of residence, to request or renew driving credentials and IDs. This is part of a phased, county-by-county transfer that provides Kentuckians more choices and modern licensing services. Here’s what you need to know:
HOW TO RENEW OR APPLY:
Boone County residents may renew or apply for a REAL ID or new standard driver licenses, permits, CDLs, and ID cards at any KYTC Driver Licensing Regional Office. Applicants are encouraged to make an appointment online at drive.ky.gov. Walk-ins are welcome, but capacity is limited.
@KentuckyStatePolice will continue to oversee all permit and license testing. Appointments MUST BE scheduled online for written or road testing. Visit kentuckystatepolice.org/driver-testing for scheduling and testing locations.
For the first time in Kentucky, license holders who want to renew their current license, and whose name and address have not changed, now can do so online. See www.dlrenewal.ky.gov for information.
