Suspended to Reinstated Clinics will be held in many locations.  Watch this space to see the schedule of the clinics - dates, times and locations.

Clinics will be held over the next two years and beyond. Other parts of the state will be hosts to clinics.

The first year of the program will concentrate on Topeka and Shawnee County where 11,000 persons have suspended driver's licenses.

Materials needed at appointment: An ID, current insurance card if you have it, any documents from the courts or the state in reference to your traffic issues. 

The first Suspended to Reinstated Clinic was held January 24, 2024, and was a Big Success!  See pictures below.
