Please note:

  • If your out of state license has been expired over 1 year, you will be required to complete a vision, written, and driving exam.

  • If you have an out of state permit, you will be required to complete testing in Kansas for a Kansas license or permit.
  • If you have a license from a U.S. territory, Canada, Taiwan, Palau, Marshall Islands, or the Federated States of Micronesia, your license will transfer, and you will not need to complete a written and driving exam in Kansas.
