​Statewide Initiatives

Confident Kentucky 

Kentucky is advancing the issuance and production process of driver's licenses, permits and personal IDs in an effort to improve the security of state-issued credentials and to comply with federal REAL ID standards.

Emergency Notice

Free online service for Kentucky drivers to designate an emergency contact law enforcement can notify in the event of a serious vehicle crash or emergency situation.


 

 Know Your Limits 

Heavy emergency vehicles use bridges and culverts to transport staff and equipment in critical situations. KYTC has developed a resource for fire departments to search for bridge and axle weight limits, and to review an interactive map of bridges with weight limits sorted by county.
