New Personalized Plate Renewal Law Takes Effect
By West Kentucky Star Staff
FRANKFORT - The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says all personalized license plates will transition to a birth month expiration beginning Jan. 2 to comply with Kentucky law, which now requires personalized license plates to expire on the last day of the vehicle owner's birth month.

Currently, personalized license plates expire annually on December 31, and all applicants must renew their registration in-person at their local County Clerk's office between November 15 and December 31. Beginning in January, individuals with January, February or March birth months will renew their personalized plates in person or online anytime between their birth month and April 30. All other birth months will renew by the last day of their birth month. In 2020, all applicants will renew by the last day of their birth month.

Personalized plate holders who renew between November 15 and December 31 of 2018 will pay 2019 registration fees for the period of January 1, 2019 through the last day of the individual's birth month in 2019. Online renewal is not available through December 31 but will resume January 2, 2019 for unexpired registration renewals only. The changes only affect the timing of when applicants renew and do not include any fee changes.

When renewing your registration at the County Clerk's office, applicants are advised to bring a photo ID, Kentucky certificate of registration, current original (not a copy) proof of Kentucky insurance effective within 45 days, and an appropriate form of payment.
