Kentucky has long been a center of agriculture and animal husbandry. Horse breeding and racing remain important drivers of the state's economy. At the same time, auto production and repair have also become part of the state's repetoire as several companies including Toyota have set up shop in the Bluegrass State. Kentucky is dedicated to being business friendly and keeps business licensing relatively simple - and processes straightforward.
In Kentucky, limousines and airport shuttles serve the public and therefore need special licensing in most local jurisdictions. In some locations, airports add additional permits and costs for passenger services that wish to pick-up at terminals. These for-hire or livery businesses must comply with state, county and city licensing requirements.
