Highway District 8



The Department of Highways District 8 is headquartered in Somerset and provides services to a ten-county area including Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Lincoln, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell, and Wayne counties. In addition to the construction and maintenance of approximately 2,700 miles of state highways, District 8 personnel address other issues such as snow removal, weed abatement, and safety programs as they relate to driving, bicycle, and pedestrian behaviors, to name a few.

Driver licensing services offered by the Office of Circuit Court Clerk in each county will gradually transfer to the Transportation Cabinet's new network of Driver Licensing Regional Offices by June 30, 2022. The new licensing model offers more options and modern services, such as online appointment scheduling, your choice of a four or eight-year license, REAL ID licenses, and NEW online license renewal (for cardholders whose name and address haven't changed).

Kentucky State Police will continue to oversee all written and road testing.
