60 Day Permit

60 permits can ONLY be issued on newly purchased vehicles. The new owner's name and Kansas driver's license number MUST be assigned on the back of the title. These permits are valid only for the first 60 days of ownership. Only one 60-day permit can be issued to any person per vehicle sale. The date of sale is the legal date of purchase, which is used to determine the expiration date of the permit. Proof of insurance coverage must be provided for the vehicle. The cost of the permit is $13.00.

At least one registered owner's Kansas driver's license number is required on every personal vehicle title application or renewal. Owners of vehicles registered in a business name will be asked to furnish their FEIN number, which will be entered instead of a driver’s license number. Leased vehicle users will be asked for the lessee’s Kansas driver’ license number. This information will not print on your receipt and will be on file only with the Kansas Department of Revenue. We do not retain this information at the county level.

Sixty-day permits can also be obtained with an electronic sales agreement form, electronic POA form & owner's registration.
