You must surrender any out-of-state operator’s license when applying for an operator’s license in Kentucky. To obtain an out-of-state transfer, the driver must provide a Social Security card (cannot be laminated) and proof of a Jefferson County address (i.e., deed, property tax bill, lease, utility bill).
If you do not have an out-of-state license, you will be required to show an official driving record or clearance letter from the last state where you held a driver’s license.
Transfers may be made at any of the six Driver’s License branches unless the out-of-state license has expired. If the out-of-state license has expired, the driver must take the vision and written tests at the Bowman Field Driver’s License Branch.
