Governor Sam Brownback has announced a DMV Modernization Task Force. The Governor's office says the group will examine private and public sector models that could improve the state's DMV.
"The aim of the task force will be improving customer service and efficiency while recognizing the significant differences around the state," Gov. Brownback said in a press release. "They will not only look at how our state Division of Vehicles operates, with county treasurers as agents of the state, but also examine best practices from around the country. The goal isn’t to rehash problems; rather, it is to study how to create the best system going forward – not just with titles and registrations but also with driver licensing."
"DMV challenges are nothing new," Brownback said. "But as it examines these old challenges with fresh eyes, my task force is going to look for new solutions and new approaches. There is no predetermined outcome other than developing thoughtful recommendations that will make it easier for citizens and businesses in Kansas to get their vehicle titles, license plates, and driver’s licenses."
The task force's next meeting is set for October 12.
