Edmonson County Circuit Court Clerk Tanya Hodges is advising Edmonson County drivers that the Kentucky Department of Transportation is no longer mailing driver's license renewal notices.
"Some people believe those notices come from my office, but they never have," she said. "They come from Frankfort, and they've announced that the notices will no longer be used."
Driver's licenses must be renewed every four years in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
A memo that was sent to all circuit clerks said that the KY Division of Drivers Licensing will save an estimated $250,000 per year by discontinuing the notices, and that money will be used for state roads and bridges. The memo also said the state can offer email and text notifications to anyone wishing to provide that information voluntarily.
