Kentucky DMV computer system is back online, possible delays

UPDATE: The problem causing Kentucky’s computer system used to process vehicle transactions has been resolved, according to the Kentucky Cabinet of Transportation.

COVINGTON, Ky. (WXIX) – Kentucky’s computer system used by counties to process vehicle-related transactions was down statewide Monday, prompting several offices to close across the state.

The problem stems from a recent implementation of the system by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, officials said.

“Our motor vehicle departments in both locations will be closed for the day due to the complete state computer system outage statewide,” read the Boone County Clerk’s website.

“Let’s hope the state will solve the problem soon!” If you want to call before going to either office to see if the system is working, here are the numbers: Burlington: 859-334-2108 (or) Florence 859-647-8702.

“It has an impact on motor vehicles, only our other departments are still fully operational. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.”

The Kenton County Clerk’s website states that Covington and Independence Automotive Services are unable to process transactions.

“The system has been experiencing technical difficulties since Tuesday, July 6, 2021,” the county clerk’s website reads.

“We don’t have an estimate of a time or date for this issue to be resolved. We’re sorry for the inconvenience. Customers can still get your sheriff’s inspection if you have a car out of order. State.

In Kenton County, you can call 859-392-1652 before coming to the office to make sure the system is back.
