Kansas’ approximately 141,000 miles of roads keepour state’s economy moving between cities and towns ─
both rural and urban ─ and these roads help us stay
connected.Even more importantly, these roads are built to keep
safe our state’s most valuable assets: people like you.
As drivers, we also have a big responsibility forkeeping our roads safe, and this handbook was createdwith that purpose in mind. Whether you are a new orexperienced driver, it will help prepare you tosuccessfully complete your driving test, which focuses
on shared “rules of the road” that help us all drive
safely.One new item I want to highlight is the information about texting while driving.Because a growing number of traffic accidents and deaths have been caused bypeople sending text messages while driving, the Kansas Legislature updated ourdriving laws to prohibit this activity that can dangerously distract us from the road.I invite you to visit our website, www.ksrevenue.org, for answers to otherquestions you may have. The Kansas Department of Revenue strives to make yourexperience with the Division of Vehicles quicker, more user-friendly, andconvenient. Our website gives you another way to take care of some serviceswithout leaving your house or waiting in lines.Sincerely,Sam Brownback Governor
