How to Check My Kansas Driver's License Status

by Nicki Callahan

A driver's license might be suspended in Kansas for a myriad of reasons, such as a DUI conviction, driving without the proper liability insurance or failure to file an accident report. Once a license has been suspended, you must await the court mandated amount of time for reinstatement. After this you will need to apply for a new license. This will require taking the written exam and passing the driver's test again. If you have completed all of these steps and are still perplexed as to the status of your driver's license, the information is readily accessible by following a few simple links.


Visit the Kansas Department of Revenue site at and follow the link to frequently asked questions. Look under the heading "How do I get a copy of my driving record" and there you will find a link that allows you to purchase your driving record on-line 24 hours a day seven days a week for a fee of $6.60, as of January 2011.


Access the link and input your name, address, telephone number and email address. Select the payment option and input your credit card information. You will then receive electronic access to your records. These records will display the date your driving record was obtained, your driver's license number, your name and personal statistics and the current status of your driver's license, among other information.


Seek assistance in reading this form as it is internally coded by the DMV. Follow the link to a PDF form to decipher the numbers and codes regarding the status of your license. If you require further assistance, you may call the Kansas State DMV at (785) 296-3671, and a customer service representative will assist you.
