Welcome to our Fix the Kansas DMV Website

This site is designed to communication the problems caused by the Kansas DMV software conversion (Modernization Project) that took place in May 2012. The opinions expressed are the personal opinions of the website developer as both a Kansas Taxpayer and a customer of the State DMV and Johnson County Kansas DMV. It is our goal to hold the highest levels of Kansas State government officials accountable for the failure of the conversion, the subsequent cost to taxpayers and the inconvenience experienced by DMV customers.  We are calling for the resignation or termination of the Secretary of Revenue Nick Jordan, head of the DMV and Donna Shelite, Director of Motor Vehicles and sponsor of the Modernization Project.
