Letter: Online license renewal

Jessica writes:
I may be going to the wrong place on the site, but I can't find anywhere to renew a license online. I saw that you can if you're military personnel, but not a regular person. It says anybody else has to go to their respective county's clerk's office to renew.
Jessica, thanks for writing. As we understand it, drivers' licenses can now be renewed remotely, meaning you don't have to physically be at the courthouse, but there isn't an online portal for renewal.

You'll still need to contact the local Circuit Court Clerk by phone, email, or mail to start the process.

In Adair County, you can call 270-384-2626, or email

For other counties, visit to find the phone number for your local Circuit Court Clerk. Keep in mind that Emergency Order 112204 (PDF) allowing remote renewal was only enacted on Thursday, May 28, 2020, so it might take local offices a few business days to figure out new procedures. --Pen
