Change at Kenton Clerk's Office Makes it Easier to Renew Vehicles

Effectively immediately, Kenton County residents can now renew their cars over the phone by calling 1-877-885-3009.

“Unlike the online renewal system offered by the Department of Transportation which limits someone to renewing only the standard plates, this new line allows someone to renew any plate including the personalized plates, the membership plates, and specialty plates,” said Kenton County Clerk Gabrielle Summe, in a news release.

Since the majority of specialty plates are due in the month of December, the ability to renew any plate by phone is a huge advantage for the customer, Summe said, as the customer can now avoid the long lines at the end of the month.

The other benefit to a renew-by-phone system is the flat rate to a credit card versus a percentage of the renewal fees and taxes.

Summe said the process is easy: Have your blue registration & credit card ready, call 1-877-885-3009 and follow the prompts. Make sure to leave a call back number in case insurance must be verified or additional information is required.
