Changes are coming to Kentucky's vehicle registration system

FRANKFORT, KY (WFIE) - Kentucky drivers will be seeing some changes to the state's vehicle registration system.

There will now be “print on demand” decals for license plate renewals which are printed at the time of registration.

The decals will no longer be color-coded by year. They will have black letters on a white background.

The year and month of expiration will be in bold. The license plate number associated with the registered vehicle is printed on the bottom.

The decals are printed on the registration receipt with a special feature that allows them to be peeled off and applied to a license plate.

The registration receipt will now will be on 8 1/2-inch by 11-inch white paper.

to see the changes.

Several counties are already using the new decals and registration receipts.  All counties in Kentucky should be using them by the end of April.

People with the old registration decals should keep them until they expire.

The change to print-on-demand decals and registrations is part of a comprehensive overhaul and eventual replacement of Kentucky's 30-year-old vehicle registration system.

Once fully developed, the system will combine titling and registration for boats as well as motor vehicles, creating a more efficient registration process for customers.
