The Jefferson County Clerk's Downtown Offices are temporarily closed due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. This includes all County Clerk offices located at 531 Court Place and Metro Hall (527 W. Jefferson Street).

The departments affected by this closure are: All Motor Vehicle branches, Dealer Department, Lien Department, Motor Vehicle Records, Deed Room, Professional License (Marriage License and Notary), Election Center and our Call Center.

The Jefferson County Clerk's Office's top priority is the health and safety of our employees and customers. Following the Governor's mandate and CDC guidelines, we have other Jefferson County Clerk's Office branch locations that are allowing in-person transactions up to 50% capacity.

However, we highly encourage all motor vehicle renewals to continue to be processed online, by mail, telephone or drop-box service. The following resources can help assist any Jefferson County resident while eliminating an in-person visit to our office.

MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSACTIONS: Residents can renew vehicles online at drive.ky.gov, by calling 502-569-3300, by mail at P.O. Box 33033, Louisville, KY 40232-3033, or by drop-box service at all branch locations, except for our Downtown Branch during this temporary closure. Transactions such as boat, trailer and vehicle transfers, both in-state and out-of-state; disabled parking placards and duplicate titles will be processed at all Branch locations except our Downtown Branch during this temporary closure. Drop Boxes are also available Mon. ndash; Fri. 8:30 a.m. ndash; 4:30 p.m. at all our motor vehicle branch locations (except Downtown) if the appropriate documentation has been completed. Customers are encouraged to utilize the "Live Chat" feature on our website for questions concerning these transactions. Sheriff inspections are still being conducted at select branch locations.
