This bill effected driver license issuance in the following manner.
- Expanded electronic driver’s license renewal process
- Allows for credential holders to opt in to receive their renewal notice electronically.
- Kansas residents that have a Driver’s License or ID Card that expired between March 12, 2020 through March 31, 2021 will have until June 30, 2021 to renew that credential without paying any late fees. [Ed’s Note: There is no current extension for vehicle registration expirations.]
- Removes the $25.00 required fee to apply for restricted driving privileges in lieu of suspension for failure to comply with traffic citations and also eliminates the additional 90-day suspension for a driving while suspended conviction that occurred while the person was suspended for failure to comply with traffic citations.
