What Does The Kansas DOV Do?

The Kansas Department of Revenue’s Division of Vehicles (DOV) handles all services for drivers in the state, including driver licensing and ID card applications and renewals; vehicle titles, registrations, and renewals; and driving records. The Department of Wildlife and Parks is responsible for boat registration in Kansas.

When you move to Kansas, you must exchange your driver’s license and apply for a vehicle registration within 90 days of establishing residency in the state. Prior to registering your vehicle, you must first have a VIN inspection performed at an approved inspection location.

The DOV also has specific information geared toward its military residents and non-residents, in order to accommodate the unique circumstances that military service brings. Non-residents stationed in Kansas are not required to get a KS license or registration while serving in the state.

Online and Third-Party Services

The Kansas DOV’s online services are available through the DOR as well as the state’s iKan app. These tasks include:

  • Driver license/ID card renewal
  • Duplicate licenses and IDs
  • License status checks
  • Driving test appointments

  • Checking specialty plate availability
  • Address updates
  • Driving records

You can access many licensing and vehicle forms online. You can also access the Kansas Driving Handbook online, in addition to the Motorcycle and Commercial driver handbooks. Looking to study for your license exam? The DOV offers an online practice test to give you the extra prep you need.

The DOV partners with third-party servicers to handle tasks such as virtual queue management and its practice test execution, as well as its iKan app and motorcycle training.
