Transfer Your Kentucky Driver's License

When you move to another state, keep your KY driver's license until you transfer it to your new home state (see below for transfer instructions).

Depending on the state to which you move, you may or may not have to relinquish your old Kentucky license. If you're allowed to keep it, you may want to destroy it yourself to prevent identity theft or other illegal use.

For more information, visit the Federal Trade Commission's Fighting Back Against Identity Theft website.
