A Kansas Driver's License can be renewed either in person at any driver's license exam station in the State, or by mail.


  1. Your Kansas driver's license will generally expire on your birthday. The expiration year depends on your age when the expiring license was issued or last renewed:
    Driver's Age at License
    Issue or Last RenewalValidity of License
    under 21license expires on 21st birthday
    21-65license valid for 6 years 
    65 and olderlicense valid for 4 years    
  2. It is advisable to renew your driver's license before the expiration date as a penalty of $1 will be imposed thereafter. You can renew your license any time two years prior to its expiration.
  3. You need to pass a vision and a written test. Alternatively, you can get a certificate from an ophthalmologist, provided it is not earlier than 3 months from the date of your renewal application.


You must bring:

  1. Your expiring license and proof of identity.
  2. Proof of Kansas Residency. For foreign visitors proof of lawful presence is required.
  3. A valid Social Security number.
  4. The renewal fee, which depends on the type of license and validity, and may also include a photo fee and exam fee.

  1. Complete the Kansas Renewal, Extension or Replacement form that is applicable for your situation.
  2. You can either fax the completed form with the additonal information and payment to (785) 296-0691 or mail it to:
