Kansas says it's fixed license bureau computer glitch

The computer system that is used to issue Kansas driver’s licenses is expected to be back in operation this morning.

The server, which is also used to issue Kansas identification cards, went down Tuesday and remained out of service Wednesday.

“We realize this outage has been a great source of inconvenience and frustration for many people,” Director of Vehicles Donna Shelite said in a news release late Wednesday. “The vendor responsible for the eight-year-old server is continuing work to ensure we do not have an unplanned outage like this again.”

Because of the outage, exam stations are giving 15-day extensions to people whose licenses or IDs have expiration dates from March 31 to April 6.
