NEWS RELEASE

FRANKFORT, Ky.- Tired of waiting in long lines or using personal time to renew your vehicle registration? Have you exhausted time and energy trying to enroll in state traffic school or file your trucking taxes? The Department of Vehicle Regulation (DVR) has announced a more convenient option to provide motorists the services they need while keeping them on the road and out of lines. Visit the newly revamped website http://drive.ky.gov.

“Congratulations to the DVR staff for building this user friendly website,” said Gov. Matt Bevin. “The retooled website provides an efficient and convenient option for Kentuckians, as well as guests traveling through the Commonwealth, to access services and information vital to common motorist and trucking activities. This website is a great example of how state government can provide business-friendly solutions for Kentucky citizens and for all who use our roadways.”

Motorists can now access numerous online services from any computer or mobile device. Drivers can renew vehicle registrations, enroll in state traffic school, file trucking taxes or purchase driving history records.

The site also allows commercial vehicle operators to apply for permits and drivers to pay license reinstatement fees. In addition, information tabs on the site’s homepage provide details for accessing the status of commercial driver license (CDL) applications as well as for understanding mandatory insurance laws. These examples of the myriad services currently offered by the site are the result of the DVR’s desire to satisfy the needs of its customers.

“Our partnership with Kentucky Interactive has produced a top-notch, user-friendly website,” said John-Mark Hack, commissioner of the Department of Vehicle Regulation. “Drive.ky.gov is designed to maximize convenience and provide the world-class customer service that is deserved and expected by Kentucky citizens and the companies who do business here.”

Last year, the DVR launched the website to low fanfare and limited service capability. Now, the relaunched site has been expanded to offer more online services in a user- friendly platform. The DVR continues to welcome motorists to visit their local Circuit Court Clerk and County Clerk offices, as well as the One-Stop Shop in Frankfort.
Drive.ky.gov was built at no-cost for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet through a public-private partnership with Frankfort-based Kentucky Interactive, LLC.
