LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Circuit Court Clerk Vincent Riggs announces a new system that will notify citizens (by email) when their driver’s license is about to expire.
“As many are aware, the Kentucky Department of Transportation discontinued the mailing of postcard notices regarding the expiration of driver’s licenses over a year ago to save $250,000 a year,” Riggs says. “Since that time, the Circuit Court Clerk heard your concerns regarding the notices and collaborated with DOT to develop a solution with no additional expense to the public.”
Riggs states the process is simple, the deputy clerk will ask for the driver’s email when renewing their license and it will be updated into the driver’s license system. The driver will receive a reminder email at six months, four months and one month prior to the expiration date.
He says this method is more reliable because residential addresses often change; however, most email addresses remain the same.
“A citizen does not have to wait until they renew their driver’s license to provide their email address but can stop in at one of our locations and update it as well,” Riggs says.
The Circuit Clerk’s office insituted Saturday hours a few years ago and now the 1591 Wincester Road branch is open on the first Saturday of the month and the 3301 Keithshire Way branch is open on the third Saturday of the month from 9 a.m. until noon.
Remember the drivers license expiration notices that were discontinued in KY? Guess what? You can now provide your email to Fayette Circuit Court Clerk and a reminder will be sent to you prior to expiration! pic.twitter.com/AxpwKUfNYd
