(a) A motor vehicle owned by a nonresident shall not be operated in this state upon a highway or upon property open to use by the public, unless a motor vehicle liability insurance policy meeting the requirements of K.S.A. 40-3107, and amendments thereto, is in effect for such vehicle, or such nonresident has qualified as a self-insurer pursuant to subsection (f) of K.S.A. 40-3104, and amendments thereto, or has filed the form prescribed in subsection (b) of this section. Whenever the privilege of a nonresident operating a motor vehicle in this state is suspended for failure of the owner to maintain financial security, in effect, the director shall report such violation to the motor vehicle administrator in the state wherein the vehicle is registered. The director is hereby authorized to enter into such reciprocal agreements with the motor vehicle administrator or other appropriate official in other jurisdictions as may be necessary to effectuate the provisions of this act.

(b) Every insurance company authorized to transact the business of motor vehicle liability insurance in this state shall file with the commissioner as a condition of its continued transaction of such business within this state a form approved by the commissioner declaring that its motor vehicle liability policies, wherever issued, shall be deemed to provide the insurance required by K.S.A. 40-3107, and amendments thereto, when the vehicle is operated in this state. Any nonadmitted insurer may file such a form. A qualified self-insurer, approved by an agency of the state in which the vehicles are registered, may certify its compliance with K.S.A. 40-3107, and amendments thereto, on a form prescribed by the commissioner.
