An out-of-state inspection is only required when a vehicle is brought into Kentucky from another state or purchased in another state, and when the owner is going to reside in Logan County and would like to obtain a Logan County license plate. Your vehicle must comply with the provisions of KRS Chapter 189 pertaining to vehicle equipment. Simply put, your vehicle must be in a safe condition for operation on the highway and capable of transporting both persons and contents in a safe manner. This would include, but not be limited to, the brakes, steering, headlights, rear lights, brake lights, required seatbelts, and turn signals being in place and fully operable. Additionally, all window glass must be undamaged and the vehicle must be equipped with operable front windshield wipers.
A Logan County Deputy Sheriff, certified in vehicle inspections, will check the vehicle identification number (VIN) and compare it with the number on the Title or Certificate of Origin. This information, along with the vehicle's mileage, is recorded on a Kentucky Application for Certificate of Title/Registration Form. You must take this completed form to the County Clerk to obtain your Kentucky license plate. The inspector may also check the vehicle for all safety features, including lights, wipers, horn, turn signals, glass, brakes, etc.
The fee for an inspection is $5. Cash, check, or credit/debit card will be accepted. An added convenience fee is applied for credit/debit card payments. We will also come to your location to inspect a vehicle. There will be a trip fee of $10 in addition to the inspection fee for a total of $15. For inspections done at your location, only checks will be accepted for payment.
