Dear Kentucky Driver, We are privileged each time we get behind the wheel of a vehicle and drive down one of Kentucky’s scenic back roads or expansive highways. Along with this privilege comes a great responsibility – something we should keep in the forefront of our minds as we traverse the Commonwealth. This manual is created to give you the proper foundation for carefully and responsibility taking on your role as a new driver. Study it well and you will be on your way to an enjoyable and safe driving experience. Remember to always wear your seatbelt, require the same of passengers and make sure that all children are secured in a federally approved child restraint seat. Obey Kentucky’s traffic laws. They are on the books to protect the safety and well being of everyone who travels throughout the Bluegrass State. Best wishes for a safe and pleasurable driving experience. Sincerely ,

Steven Governor
