Kansas Vehicle Registration

Registering your car in the state of Kansas is a fairly simple process. Typically, dealerships handle car registration for you, but if you purchase a car from a private seller or are gifted a car in any other way, you must register your car with the Driver License Division (DOR). Whether you need to apply for a new car registration, renew or replace an existing one, or change your address or name on your car registration, we're here to help.

1: Get Started with Online Application Services

Online application assistance can simplify the process for many DOR related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. Where possible, we will prepare your DOR forms and/or provide links to DOR online services. You will also receive 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. In addition, you will be able to take advantage of a free membership to BMV Advisors, a state-specific help desk prepared to answer any driver-related questions or concerns you may have. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail, if eligible (read below for instructions)

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DOR in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DOR.

3: Via a local DOR office

If you prefer to access DOR services in person or your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at a physical DOR office location. Varying DOR offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DOR closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local DOR allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.
