New vehicle system will allow license plates to stay with drivers

The new vehicle system being implemented statewide will allow Kentuckians to keep their license plates when transferring vehicle ownership- a move that will improve convenience and save money for Kentuckians.

This is a change from the current practice where plates were linked to the vehicle.

Kentuckians will now retain both unexpired registration and the license plate when transferring ownership and owners of specialty license plates, such as nonprofit and military, will save money by no longer paying for a standard license plate to go with the transferred vehicle and paying to place their specialty plate on the new vehicle.

This change will go into effect with the implementation of the new system this month.
