Kansas Issues New Plates

Kansas is replacing a number of older license plates when you renew your registration this year. As soon as you get your new plate, don't forget to log into your parking account, delete the car with the old plate, and add it back with the new plate number. When it asks if you want to "add this new plate to your current permit?" you must be sure to say YES.

Keep License Plates Updated

It is your responsibility to keep your active license plate information up-to-date and always linked to your permit.
