Glitches prompt grace time

Expired plates to be OK until the end of June

By The Mercury

The Kansas Department of Revenue and Kansas law enforcement agencies are granting one-month grace periods for the renewal of vehicle tags that expire Thursday. The extra time is prompted by slow service resulting from computer glitches with the new Kansas vehicle title and registration system.

The grace period applies to vehicle tags that expire May 31, and will continue through June 29. As a general rule, it affects those car owners whose names end in E, F or G. Officials said that for 30-day permits, the old cardboard style permit can be displayed on vehicles through June 29 and for 30-day permits that will expire between May 1 and May 31, there will be a grace period through June 29.

In early May, state officials converted to a new system of renewing license plates, and that system has since prompted complaints of long waits in some counties.

Officials urged those renewing their vehicle tags to use the online system at https://www. or mail in renewals to their county treasurers.
