Permit tests in Kentucky resume, road test information coming soon

Permit testing resumes in Kentucky by appointment, and more information on road testing is expected in July.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Teens and parents, rejoice! Permit testing is available by appointment in the Bluegrass state.

Months after the COVID-19 pandemic closed in-person government services, Kentucky State Police said permit testing has now resumed.

KSP, who administers both permit and road tests, said the road testing portion for restricted licenses have not yet resumed. Trooper Robert Purdy said it's because of the close proximity involved in that portion of the testing.

While road tests have been put on hold, Purdy said KSP expects more guidance from the state regarding those tests on July 1.

Driver's license services were suspended in Kentucky on March 18 when Gov. Andy Beshear closed in person government services because of coronavirus.  

To make an appointment in for permit testing, people can find the phone number for its local office on the list below.
