How do I update my Kentucky driver license if I currently have an expired license? Kentucky

Just take your expired license to your local Circuit Court Clerk's office, along with your $20 payment for your new drivers license. As long as your license didn't expire longer than a year ago, you won't need to take a license test. But, if it did, you'll need to pass the written test again in order to obtain your license renewal.

Keep in mind you can renew your license up to six months in advance of its expiration date if you're 21 or older.

Driving With an Expired License

Just because the penalties aren't harsh for renewing an expired driver license doesn't mean you should drive with one. In fact, if Kentucky law enforcement catches you driving with an out-of-date license, you risk getting a traffic ticket and a hefty fine.
