A New Bill Restores Drivers With Suspended Licenses

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- A third law that goes into effect tomorrow is House Bill 2009.

The bill restores a system to allow motorists with suspended licenses to get a restricted license to drive to work, school or other important destinations. While paying off traffic fines over time.

To take advantage of this law applicants must pay a $25.00 non-refundable fee and make written application to the Kansas Department Of Motor Vehicles.

The restricted license is effective for one year. Drivers with suspended licenses are eligible to apply for a restricted license only if their licenses were suspended over unpaid traffic offenses that were non-criminal or misdemeanors.
