FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky has a new regional driver licensing office in Richmond where some services are available remotely.

The Richmond location is the 11th Kentucky Transportation Cabinet regional office newly opened or reopened to handle licensing needs during the coronavirus pandemic, the cabinet said in a news release.

Anyone whose license, permit or ID card was lost or expired, or will expire, anytime from March 1 through Feb. 28 and who doesn't require testing may apply for renewal or replacement remotely through the circuit court clerk in their county, the agency said.

Essential, in-person public services are offered in a way that protects public health, Gov. Andy Beshear said. “Essential services include issuing, renewing and replacing operator’s licenses and official identification cards for our fellow Kentuckians who depend on them for employment, travel and emergencies,” he said.

Real IDs must be applied for in person.

The other regional driver licensing offices are in Paducah, Madisonville, Elizabethtown, Frankfort, Lexington, Morehead, Somerset, Columbia, Jackson and Prestonsburg.
