What will be inspected?

A Henderson County Deputy Sheriff, or a Henderson 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.


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 the following and more:

  • Brakes
  • Glass
  • Horn
  • Lights
  • Turn Signals
  • Wipers
