Download pdf186.470 Application of minor -- Renewal of minor's license or permit -- Parental
consent to release of academic information to cabinet -- Cancellation.
The application of any minor under the age of eighteen (18) for an operator's
license, motorcycle operator's license, intermediate license, or any instruction
permit shall not be granted unless the application is signed by a parent or legal
guardian of the applicant. Regardless of which parent signs the application, both
parents shall be responsible as provided in KRS 186.590. If the minor does not have
a father, mother, or guardian, an operator's license, intermediate license, or
instruction permit shall not be granted to the minor unless his application is signed
by a person willing to assume the obligation imposed by KRS 186.590 upon a
person signing the application of a minor. A signature shall not be required in the
case of the renewal of a minor's license but the signature on the original application
shall continue to make the parent, guardian, or other person liable under the
provisions of KRS 186.590 on all renewals of the minor's license until he reaches
the age of eighteen (18) unless the license, or any renewal thereof, is canceled as
provided in subsection (3) of this section.
The application shall include parental consent for the receipt and release of the
information as set forth in KRS 159.051 regarding the attendance and academic
requirements for a minor to acquire and keep an operator's license, intermediate
license, instructional permit, or privilege to operate a motor vehicle.
A parent or a guardian of a minor applicant may file with the cabinet a verified
written request that the license of the minor be canceled. Thereupon the license of
the minor shall be canceled and the person who signed the application shall be
relieved as to subsequent acts of the minor from the liability imposed by subsection
(1) of KRS 186.590.
The cabinet upon receipt of satisfactory evidence of the death of the person who
signed the application of a minor for a license shall have the license canceled and no
new license shall be issued to the minor until a new application, signed and verified,
is made as required by this section.
