Do you have a suspended drivers license in Kansas?

Your right to drive should not be based on your income

Driver’s license suspensions are a major barrier to maintaining employment, getting to the doctor’s office, taking children to school, and going to the grocery store. The system-wide practice of suspending driver’s licenses for unpaid debt dramatically impacts the economic wellbeing of the individual, household, and community. Research also shows Kansans of color and those experiencing poverty are disproportionately impacted by debt-related driver's license suspensions, and, on average, their suspensions last longer.
