A lost driving privilege can seriously affect how you do everyday tasks like how you get to school, work, appointments, as well as getting your family around too; the bus doesn’t always run on your schedule. Kansas has different restriction laws based on whether the violation was made whilst under the influence of drugs and alcohol or not. The following information pertains to those who were not guilty of traffic violations due to a DUI/DWI.

Suspended Driving Privilege

In the state of Kansas, your driver’s license can be revoked or suspended for any number of moving violations or other offenses. It is possible to acquire a driver’s license at a future date, it depends upon your violation and there are restrictions.

Kansas Driver’s License Statutes

Restrictions on licensees, suspension or revocation can be imposed by authorities on an issued driver’s license whenever good cause appears. This means the authority (judge) can impose reasonable restrictions suitable to the licensee’s driving ability with respect to the type of vehicle or special mechanical control devices required on it, which the licensee may operate. Other restrictions applicable to the licensee as the authorities see appropriate to assure the safe operation of a motor vehicle by the licensee.

Driving While License is Canceled

Driving while a license is canceled, suspended, or revoked and result in the following penalties:

  • The extension of suspension or revocation time
  • An ignition interlock device restriction

Any person who drives a vehicle on the highway at a time when such person’s privilege to do so is canceled, suspended, or revoked or while such person’s privilege to obtain a driver’s license is suspended or revoked (pursuant to K.S.A. 8-252a, and amendments thereto), will be guilty of a class B nonperson misdemeanor on the first conviction and a class A nonperson misdemeanor on the second or other subsequent convictions.
