Renewing Your Kansas Driver’s License
To renew a Kansas driver’s license you must provide proof of identity, Social Security number, proof of Kansas residency and proof of your principal residence address. Proof of identity could be the expiring driver's license. If you do not have the expiring driver's license, you must provide something else as proof of identity.

Proof of Kansas residency and principal residence address could be the renewal card you received in the mail providing it shows your "principal residence" address not just a mailing address. If you do not receive the renewal card in the mail, you must provide something else as proof of Kansas residency and principal address. Click here for a list of acceptable documents.
You must pass a vision exam, pay the applicable fee, and have a new photograph and signature captured. The vision exam can be done in our office or the vision form can be completed by your vision specialist.
You must appear in person at a full service driver’s license office or county treasurer location that offers renewal service – click here for a list of driver’s license office locations. If you are a CDL holder you can only renew in a full service driver’s license office.
