Even though the yellow renewal notice from the State of Kansas says you can pay with credit cards, Harvey County is not equipped to take them. We only accept cash or check.

The Harvey County Driver's License office is located in the county courthouse at 800 N. Main St. Newton, Kansas.  The office hours are Monday - Friday 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. We are closed over the lunch hour from 12:00 PM to 1:OO PM. Exceptions to these hours are during employee leave times. This office can be reached at 316-284-6944.  As an agent for the State of Kansas, the Harvey County Treasurer is responsible for the operation of this office and can be reached at 316-284-6976.  This office is a limited service office.  The variety of services include:

  •   Renewing and replacing non commercial driver licenses
  •   Renewing, replacing and issuing New Identification Cards
  •   Processing Driver Education Applications
  •   Issuing MVR's
  •   Issuing Kansas Licenses to those with valid Out of State Licenses
  •   Administering closed book tests for Instruction Permits


If the lines are long at 3:30 PM, we cut off where we believe we can process the remaining customers by closing. All closed book tests must start before 3:45PM.  In addition to the license fees charged by the State of Kansas, the county also charges a service fee as follows: $3.00 for Harvey County residents, $20.00 for out-of-county residents. Commercial licenses and conceal and carry licenses must be processed at a full service office.  The three full service offices closest to Harvey County are located in Hutchinson, McPherson and Wichita. Unlike the vehicle tags where you have to renew in the county you reside, you may process your non-commercial driver's license at any office in the State of Kansas.
