It's frustrating, annoying, and can be downright risky these days if your driver's license or state ID card is lost, stolen, or destroyed.
In Kansas, replacing a lost, stolen, or destroyed driver's license or state ID card is easy. Just visit your local driver's license exam station and let the representative know that you need to replace your driver's license. Be sure to bring proper identification.
If your license is damaged and is no longer legible, or if part of it has been destroyed, keep the remaining pieces of the license to turn in to the representative at the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). You are not permitted to have two driver's licenses or state ID cards, even if one of them is damaged or partially destroyed.
Fees for a replacement drivers license are:
- Replacement fee: $8
- Photography fee: $4
You may pay all fees to the Kansas DMV by cash, check, or money order.
If you lose your driver's license, Kansas does not require a police report in order to replace it.
If you lose your Kansas driver's license while temporarily living in another state (such as members of the armed forces) or traveling out of country, you need to download and complete one of the below forms.

Your replacement driver's license will be mailed to the address indicated on the form.
