Some drivers who have pending Driving While Suspended charges in Kansas, and who are licensed in Kansas,may qualify for a "temporary license" if they meet certain conditions:
1) must be licensed in Kansas; 2) your license is not currently suspended for other violations (like insurance-SR22-requirements, DUI suspension) not related to the current failure to comply ticket; 3) your license is not currently suspended for out of state tickets that are past due.
If you meet these conditions, then you can apply for a 'modification of suspension' by using Form DC-1020. The form can be found here and does not require a fee. I would suggest having a lawyer attach a cover sheet with your application to clarify what tickets are holding back your reinstatement as well as articulating a time frame that you need to get the past due tickets resolved. The attorney can also provide some assurance that the pending tickets will in fact get resolved. The Temporary Permit goes a long way in helping to get a good outcome on any pending tickets, especially pending driving while suspended tickets.
Prosecutors will generally work with you if you have some form of driving privileges, even if temporary under the DC-1020 form. Having some status is better than having no license status. And the temporary driving privileges demonstrates your intentions of getting 'cleared' and that you recognize the seriousness of driving without a valid license. In sum, this form can pave the way for a much quicker resolution of your pending tickets and gives your attorney ammunition when speaking with the prosecutor about a resolution of your tickets.
