Department of Revenue says new Johnson County driver’s license station will start offering ‘limited services’ next week

The state has opened the Mission and Olathe Driver’s License stations for Monday hours in hopes of addressing the long wait times.

The Kansas Department of Revenue today said it expects its new driver’s license station in Overland Park to begin offering “limited” services starting Tuesday.

The department moved to open the next location following weeks of frustratingly long lines and a poorly-functioning check-in system at the Mission and Olathe stations.

Here’s the release from the Department of Revenue:

As construction on the third Johnson County driver’s license office continues, the temporary space at the same location will offer limited services beginning Tuesday.

The temporary space is located adjacent to the Department of Revenue Taxpayer Assistance Center at 7600 West 119th Street, Suite A Overland Park, Kan. The temporary office can accommodate five driver’s license examiners who will process all credential transactions except for on the road drive testing. When the permanent office opens this fall, it will be situated to serve more credential holders and offer on the road drive testing.

“We are excited to get this temporary space up and running so quickly,” Division of Vehicles Director David Harper said. “We are pleased to offer this additional service location to the people of the Kansas City metro area.”

The hours for the temporary location beginning Tuesday, August 21 are 7 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 7:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Saturdays.

The final Monday summer hours for the Johnson County offices in Mission and Olathe will be 7 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday, August 20th
