Driver's License Kiosk Up And Running At Bonny Oaks Tag Office

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

County Clerk Bill Knowles announced a new service for busy motorists visiting the Bonny Oaks tag and title office.

Mr. Knowles said, “I am pleased to work with the Department of Safety/Homeland Security, the Hamilton County Commission and Mayor Coppinger in providing a driver license renewal Kiosk at the branch tag office.

“The Kiosk is now operational and is equipped to photograph applicants. It is very user-friendly with touch screens, and clerical assistance is not needed.

“The Kiosk is for issuing driver’s license renewals, duplicate licenses and ID cards only. It will not accommodate renewals of a gun permit or a CDL driver’s license.

“A temporary license is issued immediately. A permanent laminated license will be mailed applicants by the Department of Safety within a week.

“Motorists may also obtain driver’s license services at the Clerk’s Courthouse office located in Room 201. Clerks are on duty there to provide assistance”.
