Q) I need to order an Id for my 88 year old mother. Her license expired 1 year ago and she can’t get her medicine.
A) To obtain an ID card for your mother in Kentucky, you will need to follow the steps outlined below:
- Gather the necessary documents: You will need to bring certain documents with you to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KTC) office when you apply for an ID card. These may include proof of your mother’s identity, such as a valid passport or birth certificate, proof of her Social Security number, and proof of her Kentucky residency.
- Take a photo: You will need to have a photo taken for your mother’s ID card.
- Pay the fee: You will need to pay a fee to obtain an ID card. The amount of the fee will depend on the type of ID card you are applying for.
- Get the ID card: Once you have completed all of the above steps, the KTC will issue your mother an ID card. Make sure to keep it with her at all times, as she will need it to prove her identity and age for various purposes.
It’s a good idea to check with the KTC to confirm the specific requirements and procedures for obtaining an ID card, as they may have changed since your mother’s license expired. If your mother is unable to visit a KTC office in person due to her age or health, you may be able to apply for an ID card on her behalf by executing a power of attorney. A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone else to act on your behalf in certain legal matters.
