Vehicle Inspections

Kentucky law requires all vehicles purchased in another state to be inspected by the Sheriff in the county where the vehicle is to be licensed. The inspection is intended to ensure that the vehicle is “road worthy” and can be operated safely.

Why do I need an inspection?

Simply put, your vehicle must be in a safe condition for operation upon the highway and capable of transporting both persons and contents in a safe manner. All window glass must be in place and the vehicle must be equipped with operable front windshield wipers. Features that are checked for being in place and fully operable include, but not be limited to:

  • Brake Lights
  • Brakes
  • Headlights
  • Rear Lights
  • Steering
  • Turn Signals
What will be inspected?

A Boyd County Deputy Sheriff, or a Boyd County Deputy Clerk 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.

What do I need to bring?

$5.00 Cash or Check payable to the Boyd County Sheriff’s Office. (Inspections performed by the Clerk’s office will be paid to them.)
