TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The Kansas Division of Vehicles will give commercial vehicle operators another month to renew their tags, the agency announced on Monday,

But, the extension comes with a catch: while they won't have to pay late fees if they register by the end of March, they're vehicles can still be ticketed.

The Division intends to notify law enforcement agencies across the state of its extension, but it points out the tags will still be legally expired.

"We view waiving the late fees as a customer service to help commercial motor vehicle operators as they acclimate to the changes," said Lisa Kaspar, Director of Vehicles.

The additional month comes after an initial two-month grace period which followed changes to state laws affecting commercial vehicle registration.

Commercial registration is available at 72 state and county treasurers' offices. More than 45,700 vehicles successfully have registered with the new process, so far, the Division said.
