Governor Kelly Signs Executive Order on Driver’s License Extension


TOPEKA - Governor Laura Kelly today signed Executive Order #20-66 as part of her administration’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic and her commitment to keeping Kansans healthy, and keeping Kansas open for business.

E.O. #20-66 provides for the extension of drivers’ licenses that would expire before January 26, 2021 and sets a staggered deadline for vehicle registrations depending on when a vehicle was purchased. Specific registration deadlines are outlined within the release.

“Due to the logistical challenges COVID-19 has presented, it’s important that we provide Kansans with some leniency regarding driver’s license renewal,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “This is especially important as we near the election, as people tend to use their drivers’ licenses as a form of identification at the polls.”
