Wednesday, Sept. 16
From Adair County Clerk Lisa Greer
According to data released by the Kentucky Division of Motor Vehicle Licensing numerous vehicle registrations in Adair County remain unpaid beyond their original expiration date. And time is running out for those vehicle owners to pay their registration and taxes without incurring a penalty.
Earlier this year, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet granted a grace period for vehicle and vessel registrations and disable parking placards administered by county clerks or the Cabinet. That window, which was created to ease the burden on those adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, will continue with no penalties through the close of business on October 6.
However, beginning October 7, any unpaid registration or placard due at the end of September or earlier will be considered past due and Kentucky Division of Motor Vehicle Licensing will issue penalties for the entire overdue period. That means registrations due at the end of March will have seven months of penalties tacked onto the original bill.
Registrations can be renewed in Adair County Clerk Lisa Greer’s office, Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday’s 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. CST.
When renewing your registration, be sure to bring;
- Photo identification
- Kentucky certificate of registration or postcard (mailed by Transportation)
- Current proof of Kentucky insurance
Kentuckians may also renew registrations for vehicles, trailers, and campers online at Drive.ky.gov or by mail. Boats and Disabled placards must be renewed in-person.
