A) Yes, it is recommended that you make an appointment to get a Kansas driver’s license if you are a new resident or if you are exchanging an out-of-state license. This is because the Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR) is currently experiencing high demand for driver’s license services, and walk-in wait times can be long. You can make an appointment online at the KDOR website.
Here are the steps on how to make an appointment for a Kansas driver’s license:
- Go to the KDOR website: https://www.ksrevenue.gov/
- Click on the “Driver’s License” tab.
- Click on the “Schedule an Appointment” button.
- Select your county and the office you want to visit.
- Choose a date and time that works for you.
- Click on the “Schedule Appointment” button.
You will need to bring the following documents with you to your appointment:
- Your current driver’s license or other valid identification.
- Proof of residency in Kansas. This can be a utility bill, lease agreement, or other document that shows your name and address.
- Proof of identity. This can be a birth certificate, passport, or other document that shows your date of birth and legal name.
- Proof of social security number. This can be your social security card or a letter from the Social Security Administration.
If you are applying for a commercial driver’s license, you will need to bring additional documents, such as a medical certificate and a copy of your CDL training completion certificate.
The cost of a Kansas driver’s license is $30 for a standard license and $40 for a REAL ID-compliant license. You can pay with cash, check, money order, or credit card.
