KENTUCKY KYU NUMBERS
Price: $79.00 for 1 unit, $2 each additional unit
Your KYU will usually be secured by the end of the next business day, but may take 24 to 48 hours to process.
All commercial motor vehicles with a gross weight of 60,000 pounds or more must secure
a KYU number before operating on Kentucky highways. Temporary KYU numbers are available
(Click here to apply for a 10 day temporary)
but are a costly alternative to securing a permanent KYU number.
A KYU number is proof that you have registered with Kentucky to pay a per mile tax.
Highway use tax forms will be sent to you on a quarterly basis and must be completed and
returned by the required due date. KYU numbers no longer need to be posted on the sides of
your power unit since your USDOT# will be used as means of identifying the carrier and
the status of the carriers KYU account.
