Darren Doyle, story:
The Kentucky Division of Driver Licensing has implemented a new program that requires CDL drivers to submit their required paperwork via a website, according to Edmonson County Circuit Court Clerk Tanya Hodges.
For many years, Clerk Hodges' office has allowed CDL drivers to use Hodges' office to either fax or email drivers' CDL documents. As of October 1, 2017, those faxes and emails from the Brownsville office will no longer be accepted.
Clerk Hodges said that this statewide implementation is beyond the control of her office.
The state has launched a new website, http://mycdl.ky.gov, that according to the KY Division of Driver Licensing, is intended "to make it easier for commercial drives to get CDL documents processed."
Medical Certifications, Self-Certifications, and Commercial Applications must now be submitted through the new site. According to the KYDDDL, first time users will need to create a Kentucky Business One Stop (KBOS) account if they don't already have one. The account creation is a one-time requirement. The same User ID and Password will be used each time a driver logs into their KBOS account.
A statement from the KY Transportation Cabinet said "We are confident this service will make document submission and processing faster and easier for everyone. Thank you in advance for your cooperation."
Hodges said individuals will still be able to mail their documentation into the office of the Department of Transportation or take them in-person.
"So many of the drivers have me send it for them and this new process could be frustrating to some," she said. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but again, this is a statewide requirement in which we have no control. We always strive to help each and everyone who needs our services with great care and respect and we will continue to do our best to help in any way we can."
