Im sorry if this has been gone over numerous times.

I just moved to KY from OH (Newport, KY) and I need to get my drivers license. My OH license is expired. My own fault really and I havent needed my license (yay for Metro) until I moved, so I need to get this taken care of.

I am confused on where exactly I need to go and what I will be required to do. I have heard to go to York St in Newport and also 4th street? Will I have to do a skills test/parallel parking or just vision/writing? I have seen both while looking online for this.
