Driver licensing regional office in Mayfield expanding, moving

MAYFIELD, Ky. (KBSI) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Driver Licensing Regional Office in Mayfield is expanding and moving to larger quarters.

The office was set up as a temporary, “popup” facility with two licensing stations after a tornado devastated Mayfield and much of the rest of western Kentucky in December 2021. Its primary mission was issuing replacement licenses  IDs to those who had lost their credentials in the tornado.

However, for several months the office has offered a full suite of licensing services while work progressed to create permanent office space.

The new office will have five permanent issuing stations. It is located at 355 Charles Drive just steps away from the temporary location at 351 Charles Drive.

The Mayfield office processes applications for REAL ID and standard-issue driver’s licenses, commercial driver licenses, ID cards and learner permits. It also processes in-person renewals and requests for replacement credentials.

Operating hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Appointments can be scheduled online at drive.ky.gov. The office also serves walk-in customers on a first-come, first-served basis while slots are available.

Kentuckians can skip a trip to an office by renewing their present credential online or by mail. More than 210,000 Kentuckians have renewed remotely.

Driver testing is conducted by Kentucky State Police and must be completed before a permit or license can be requested. Testing appointments can be made online at kentuckystatepolice.org/driver-testing/.
