Continuing problems with the state’s new vehicle registration system prompted the state to extend a grace period for some Kansas drivers with expired motor vehicle tags.

The Kansas Department of Revenue announced Friday that the grace period will now end July 13. It will apply to those with last names starting in H or I, or vehicles with 30-day temporary tags that expire Saturday.

The revenue department says most county motor vehicle offices are no longer experiences backlogs and long lines that began when the state installed the new system in May.

Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan says in a news release that a widespread slowdown occurred Friday, reducing the number of transactions employees could process.

Law enforcement officers will use their discretion in applying the grace period in their counties. The Kansas Highway Patrol indicated it would honor the grace period.
