What happens if I don't transfer my out-of-state driver’s license in Kentucky?
What would happen if I don't transfer or take too long to transfer my out-of-state driver’s license? I’m moving to Kentucky soon and I need to plan.
“Long story short: It’s always best practice to transfer your driver’s license ASAP.
In Kentucky, you have 30 days to change your license. If you fail to transfer your license, you risk incurring:
- Possible license suspension
- Even jail time
Once you get your license moved over to Kentucky, you’ll also need to update your car insurance to make sure it meets Kentucky’s minimum insurance requirements.
