Statewide driver’s license stations to resume operation Thursday

Kansas driver exam stations will resume issuing and renewing driver’s licenses and identification cards Thursday morning after being shut down the last two days because a problem with a vendor’s server.

“We realize this outage has been a great source of inconvenience and frustration for many people,” Director of Vehicles Donna Shelite said. “The vendor responsible for the 8-year-old server is continuing work to ensure we do not have an unplanned outage like this again.”

The problem server is part of the system that the state is replacing. Exam stations will give 15-day extensions to those whose driver’s licenses expired Tuesday or Wednesday.
