FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) — Another measure is now set to help eastern Kentuckians begin replacing what they’ve lost through historic flooding.

Gov. Andy Beshear issued an emergency order on Wednesday making it easier for flood victims to replace licenses, IDs, vehicle registrations, and vehicle titles.

The order waives any fees typically associated with duplication of a license, permit, state identification card, and titles and registration for any type of motor vehicle.

The fee waiver applies to Breathitt, Clay, Floyd, Johnson, Knott, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Owsley, Perry, Pike, and Wolfe counties. The order will remain in effect for the duration of the state of emergency.

“Licenses and IDs and titles do more than authorize someone to own and operate a motor vehicle. They’re needed to access essential public services, like doing business at a bank or applying for disaster assistance in the days and weeks ahead. Sadly for so many of our fellow Kentuckians, these documents and credentials were swept away. We’re doing what we can to help Kentuckians rebuild their lives,” said Beshear.

Additionally, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet will be making one-day visits from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to different state parks to assist in the document replacement process.

The schedule for those events is as follows:

  • Friday, August 5: Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, 75 Theatre Court, Prestonsburg, Ky. 41653
  • Monday, August 8: Pine Mountain State Resort Park, 1050 State Park Road, Pineville, Ky. 40977
  • Tuesday, August 9: Buckhorn State Resort Park, 4441 Ky Hwy. 1833, Buckhorn, Ky. 41721 

If you wish to replace a document but cannot make it to one of the events, staff at KYTC regional offices are there to help. Those offices are located in Jackson, Manchester, Pikeville, and Prestonsburg. Appointments can be made online at drive.ky.gov.
