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.

Kansas allows some drivers to renew their registration online, provided that they meet the certain state requirements. In order to register online, make sure you have a credit card to pay the required fees listed renewal notice and that your insurance company is enrolled with the DOR. Only the ones enrolled are eligible for online renewal.

To renew your Kansas tag in person, visit http://www.ksrevenue.org/dmvstations.html for a list of DOR offices in the state of Kansas. You will also be required to present payment for the required fees, your license plate number and proof of insurance.

You are only eligible to renew your tag by mail if you’re out of state or can’t make it into an office. To renew by mail, complete the information requested on the renewal notice, and enclose a check or money order for required fees with your registration number written somewhere on it. Then, mail the package into the address listed on your renewal notice.
