The owner of a vehicle must certify that the applicant has, and will maintain during the entire registration period, the required insurance, or other financial security required by Kansas law.

Many (but not all ) Insurance Companies have chosen to participate in the State's Electronic Insurance Database. If your insurance company is a participant then a physical copy of the insurance card is not required.
Check with your County Treasurer to see if your insurance company is a participant.
