As part of efforts to address lengthy lines, growing wait times and a frustrating check in system, the Kansas Department of Revenue will open a third driver’s license station in Johnson County in the coming weeks.
The Department of Revenue said Thursday that it had entered an agreement to rent space at the Rosana Square Shopping Center at 119th and Metcalf for use as a new driver’s license office — though an exact opening date is still to be determined.
The department also announced plans to open new driver’s license offices in Independence and Seneca.
Johnson County, which processes more than a quarter of all the driver’s license office visits in the state at its Mission and Olathe stations, has seen huge wait times and staff shortages this summer, prompting the intervention of local legislators.
The department announced it was extending the hours of operation at the Mission driver’s license station to include Mondays as part of a plan to address the problems for users.
