Business Processes

Motor Vehicle Department

                        We are currently processing the majority of our work out of our walk up window. You can still process online, over the phone, and by mail as usual. We are currently processing transfers for Barren County residents ONLY. If you have any questions please call us at 270-651-3783.   

Processing Over the Phone

                    When you call you can provide us with a plate, title, or VIN number and we will look up your vehicle(s) and renew and/or pay taxes on those vehicles. If the computer is asking for proof of insurance we will need that before we can proceed; we’ll just ask that you have your insurance company fax your ID Card or you can have it emailed to us and we can print it off and continue on with the renewal. When processing over the phone we are waiving our normal fee of $5.00 to process over the phone transactions. Instead it will be $0.50/vehicle for postage, being that is what it will cost us to mail it to you. Also the credit/debit card fee cannot be waived it will charge $2.50 for debit cards or 2.75% for credit cards.
