Kentucky allowing driver’s license, ID renewals remotely

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Kentucky is letting people renew or replace their driver’s licenses and ID cards remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Andy Beshear’s office said people whose licenses, permits or ID cards were lost or expired between March 1 and June 30 may apply with their circuit court clerk to receive a new one in the mail. Beshear’s order keeps the process in place through July 31.

Applicants requesting renewals must not need any testing, however.

More information is available on the Administrative Office of the Courts COVID-19 web page.

 A March order is also still in effect that keeps cards from expiring for an extra 90 days if the expiration date is March 18 or later.

Beshear reported Monday that there were at least 10,046 COVID-19 cases in Kentucky.

There were 131 new positive cases on Sunday and 214 new cases on Monday, Public Health Commissioner Dr. Steven Stack said. No deaths were reported Sunday, but there were eight deaths Monday. The total number of deaths in the state from the coronavirus is 439.
