COVINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky driver’s license offices at the Kenton County Circuit Court Clerk’s Covington Office will be closed Wednesday because the state is installing new software and cameras.
It’s part of a new enhanced security license the state is rolling out. Some of the new security features include a digital watermark, extra-fine print, better lamination to prevent tampering and a new hologram.
"The new licenses are the manifestation of Kentucky's efforts to improve the level of service provided to our customers, in addition to securing a credential Kentuckians use each day," said Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Department of Vehicle Regulation Commissioner Tom Zawacki.
The Independence and Erlanger branches will have equipment installed Oct. 17 and Oct. 19, respectively. The cost of a license renewal will remain the same at $20.
