LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- People who live in Fairdale don't have to drive as far now to get a new license.

Thursday is the official ribbon cutting on the new Fairdale Motor Vehicle Branch, but the public got a sneak peak inside on Wednesday. It's located in the Playtorium on West Manslick Road.

"I think it's long overdue," said Bobbie Holsclaw, Jefferson County Clerk. "It's an area with a lot of population out here. They usually utilize the Outer Loop branch or Dixie, and I just think it's a convenience that needed to be brought to this part of town."

Holsclaw says one thing that's different about this location is the fresh modern appeal that most government offices don't have.
