Kentucky Motor Vehicle Licensing (MVL) Forms
Thorough, comprehensive paperwork is the lifeblood of the Kentucky MVL. The MVL needs perfectly documented details in order to process your service requests, whether it’s registering a new car or applying for a new license. There are different forms involved for every service, and completing them all in person at the office can worsen wait times significantly. It’s a good idea to download and complete the forms you need ahead of time; they are available online in PDF form for you at the Kentucky online form library.
The Kentucky Drivers Manual
The Kentucky drivers manual is the master guide to everything and anything you need to know about the MVL, rules of the road, and other traffic-related information. In its pages, you’ll learn about how to best prepare for any upcoming license exams, as well as other traffic rules within Kentucky’s borders. It is especially helpful for people who have recently moved to Kentucky, as the laws and policies may be different than from where you came. Not understanding these differences can get you a ticket and harm your driving record.
Application for Certificate of Title or Vehicle Registration (Form TC 96-182)
Whenever you buy a car, you have to go through certain steps in order to properly document your new purchase to the Kentucky MVL. Regardless of the whether the car is new or used, you will need to acquire a new title in your name for the car. The title acts as legal proof of ownership of the vehicle, and will be necessary whenever you try to sell it or transfer ownership in the future. You also need to keep the vehicle annually registered in your name, and the initial registration must be done in person at the MVL office. Both of these processes require you to complete an Application for Certificate of Title or Vehicle Registration (Form TC 96-182), which will document all your information and the details about the car.
Application for Disabled Person’s Special Parking Permit (Form TC 96-204)
The specially-designated blue handicap parking spots around the country are reserved for people who have legitimate mobility impairment. In order to park in those special spots, you need to apply with the MVL, and you need the endorsement of a medical professional who can prove that you have a real medical condition. The Application for a Disabled Person’s Special Parking Permit (Form TC 96-204) will be used by your doctor to verify your disability, and whether it is temporary or permanent. Only conditions which inhibit walking will qualify, and the MVL will determine the length of validity of your plate or placard based on doctor’s orders.
Requisition for Certified Copy of Driving History Records
Your driving history record is a detailed account of all traffic violations you have committed in the last three years. Having a copy of this is useful for figuring out the present status of your license and how close you are to a potential suspension or revocation. You can order a copy of your driving history or that of other drivers by completing a Driving History Record Request. Even potential employers and insurance agencies may be looking into your driving history as well to determine your eligibility for employment or coverage, so it’s in your best interest to keep your driving record squeaky clean.
