Access the Kentucky Vehicle Code

The Kentucky legislature provides an online version of the Kentucky Revised Statutes (KRS), which includes vehicle codes. This is beneficial because being familiar with, or at least being able to research, vehicle codes can come in handy should you need to find out about laws that pertain to the roadways or driving.

Reading the Kentucky motor vehicle code can help you gain a better understanding of the traffic law that led to your citation and help you determine whether or not you can make a case to contest your ticket.

The KY vehicle code is a great way to educate yourself of the exact language that dictates your driver's license, driving privilege, and vehicle regulations. If you need legal advice, you should consider contacting a lawyer.

Check Your KY Driver's License Status

Whenever you need or want to check the status of your driver's license, you can order a driving record report. This record will spell out if your driver's license is currently valid. Should your license have been revoked or suspended, the report will indicate that according to what's on record at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. This report will also show points against your license and, in some cases, information on any accidents you have had.
