Installation of software and cameras for Kentucky’s new driver’s license will require a one-day suspension of license-issuing activity in the Madison County (Berea only) Circuit Court Clerk’s office on Monday, September 24.

Other operations of the Circuit Clerk’s office are not affected, and the office will be open all day. Driver’s licensing operations will resume the following day, and the new license will be available to Madison County (Berea only) residents.  

“The new licenses are the manifestation of Kentucky’s efforts to improve the level of service provided to our customers, in addition to securing a credential Kentuckians use each day,” said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) Department of Vehicle Regulation Commissioner Tom Zawacki.

The new license has multiple layers of security features, all linked to each other, so counterfeiters must compromise multiple technologies – not just one.

Features include:

·        Digital watermark imperceptible to the human eye

·        Bank note-level fine line printing

·        Improved dual-side lamination for greater tamper resistance and durability

·        Hologram with single-color, ultraviolet “ghost” image

Starting in the fall, new licenses will also feature “veteran” and “organ donor” designations.

Customers are not required to obtain new licenses before current licenses expire, and the process for obtaining or renewing a license will not change. The cost remains $20.
