MADISONVILLE-If you live in Monroe
County, getting your driver's license renewed no longer means a
trip to another county.
For years people have made the drive to
Athens, or sometimes Knoxville, to renew their licenses, but now it
can be done at the JPK courthouse annex in Madisonville and usually
takes no more than 10 minutes of your time.
Deputy Clerk Rhonda Cline said when you
renew your license you will get a paper copy that is good for 20
"It works the same as the license you
will receive in the mail," she said. "You can use it for any
legal needs that might come up."
The Monroe County Clerk's Office has
been renewing licenses since July, but Cline said traffic has been
"I think it's because people don't
know we can do it here," she said. "We want to get the word out
that you can save gas by coming here and there's no lines to wait
You can also use the service to make
any changes to your license and you can also renew any photo
identification card you might have.
A driver's license cost $23.50 and is
good for five years. Of that $23.50, $4 stays in the county and goes
to the general fund.
