NO LICENSES ISSUED TUESDAY
The Franklin County Circuit Court Clerk’s office will not issue driver’s licenses Tuesday to allow for the installation of software and cameras for Kentucky’s new license. Other operations in the office won’t be affected, and driver license issuing will resume on Wednesday.
The new license will be available Wednesday, but residents are not required to obtain the new license before their old one expires. The cost will still be $20.
The new license has added security features including a digital watermark, a hologram, improved dual-side lamination and bank note-level fine line printing.
“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,” Tom Zawacki, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Vehicle Regulation commissioner, said in a press release.
