Frankfort, Kentucky (February 6, 2006) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) announced a new online service today. This new service provides convenience to customers and improves operating efficiency within the cabinet. Drivers with a suspended license can now pay a reinstatement of $40.00 anytime using the online service.


“This function is just one of our additions to our administrative efforts to provide cost efficiency and convenience to citizens of the commonwealth,” said Transportation Cabinet Secretary Bill Nighbert. “We are continuing to find more processing avenues to make it easier for all Kentucky drivers while at the same time maximizing the value of our services for Kentucky taxpayers.”


Before this service was made available, a driver had to obtain a certified check or money order and take it to a Drivers License field office or mail it in to Frankfort.  The old process took up to 1 week.  Under the new process, the driver’s record is updated immediately.


This new secure site will accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards and branded (MasterCard, Visa, etc.) debit cards.  The fee payment update of the Kentucky Drivers license system is immediate for in-state drivers.  The record for an out of state driver suspended in KY will be updated within 24 hours on the National Driver Register.


Drivers with suspended licenses can access the site at  or through the Division of Driver Licensing home page at
