Is it time for your Kansas driver’s license renewal? Well, if you don’t remember how you do this last time, or if it’s your first time renewing your license, there’s no need to worry. In this guide, we’ll go through everything you need to know about to process and the different options.
In Kansas, you’re required to renew your driver’s license every 6 years. If you’re over 65 years old, this changes to every four years. If you’re under 21, your license expires on your 21st birthday.
As your renewal period is coming up, you should receive a renewal card in the mail several weeks before your license expiration date. The Kansas DMV allows for both in-person and by mail renewals. However, the requirements can vary quite a lot depending on the option you choose.
Renewing your license in person at the DMV is a popular option for Kansas drivers. It is convenient as well, as there are many clerks in the office that are there to help you.
To renew in person, you’ll need to follow these steps:

You will be required to pay a license renewal fee at the Kansas DMV. The fee is $18 plus a $6 fee if a photo is taken. Remember that renewal fees are subject to change, so we recommend that you check the latest fees on the DMV website.
You can renew your Kansas driver’s license up to a year before its expiration date. You also have a 45 day grace period from the date your license expires to renew it. If you attempt to do so afterward, you will be required to re-apply for a license and take the road and written exams.
That’s all there is to renewing your Kansas driver’s license. It may seem confusing at first, but the DMV has made the requirements to complete the process very straightforward. We hope we’ve done our part in helping you understand the process a little bit better.
