Olathe driver’s license office is open three more Mondays

Kansas officials will open the state’s two largest driver licensing offices, including the one in Olathe, for three more Mondays — through Aug. 27.

The state switched to four-day workweeks in 1984, but it added Monday hours starting July 9 at the Olathe and Wichita offices.

Almost 3,400 people have come through those offices on Mondays, including 150 who took driving tests, the Kansas Department of Revenue said.

“Having the extra day to accommodate our normal summer increase in business has helped reduce lines throughout the week,” vehicles director Donna Shelite said in a release.

The Olathe office is at 20162 W. 151st St. Monday hours are 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

The state also allows drivers to secure a place in the license line from a remote location.

To join the line in the Kansas City area, use a cellphone to send a text to 714-333-1234 with either Mission DL or Olathe DL, depending on which office you prefer.
