Madison County Circuit Clerk, Darlene G Snyder, is very happy to announce the addition of services in the Madison County Driver’s License Office, specifically now in Berea!

Beginning February 7, 2014, the Berea Driver’s License Office will be open for permit testing, and driver’s testing EVERY Friday.

Working in conjunction with State Police Sgt. Harvey Baxter, who is the Region 5 KSP Supervisor for Driver’s Testing, Ms. Snyder formulated a plan to begin driver’s testing in the Berea Office. This efficiency will result in no additional deputy clerks, or, the need for additional troopers to be hired. However, Berea testing will mean there will be no testing in Richmond on Fridays.

Ms. Snyder says, “I’m very excited for the residents of Berea and southern Madison County, who will, for the first time ever, have this service available to them. Also, this opens up more hours in the Berea office for renewals and other driver’s license needs. Our numbers indicate that 30% of those testing are Berea city residents, and that does not include residents from the southern portion of the county who drive to Richmond for testing. This is what can happen when government agencies work together for the good of the public.”

The following is a list of office hours and testing times for both Berea and Richmond:
