Driver’s education permits will be available through the online application portal beginning on May 5, 2014.
Because of last minute enhancements, the Department of Revenue has moved the date from April 1 to May 5.
The online process will eliminate the need for mail to travel back and forth from driving instructors to the Kansas Department of Revenue for review. Instead, an instructor will fill out the online form and if there are no medical or vision issues that require an additional review, the instructor will be able to immediately print out the permit slip allowing the student to drive with an instructor or guardian.
For any student with a medical or vision issue requiring additional review, the necessary examination forms will be available within 48 hours from when the records is created by the instructor.
