Renewing your license plates in Colorado is now exciting and much easier. Citizens in 12 Colorado counties now have the option to renew their vehicle registration at any of the 20 self-service kiosks located in any of those participating counties.
“As government officials, we have a responsibility to utilize technology for the convenience of our citizens,” says Adams County Clerk and Recorder Stan Martin. “If you live in one county but shop, work, attend school or go on vacation in another participating county, you can use any kiosk along the way to renew your license plate. You’ll walk away with your tabs in minutes.”
The kiosks are available to residents of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Douglas, El Paso, Freemont, Jefferson, La Plata, Larimer, Mesa and Weld counties. However, more counties may authorize kiosk transactions for residents later this year. Find your nearest kiosk at www.adcogov.org/renewal-kiosks.
“Our goal at the Motor Vehicle office has been to reduce wait times, and, since 2015, we’ve decreased the average wait time by 85%,” Martin says. “These new innovative kiosks will help that trend and provide quick and friendly service to the citizens of Adams County.”
The kiosks are yellow machines that look similar to an ATM. To use one, simply type your license plate number on the touch screen or scan the barcode on your renewal postcard; then, pay by check, credit or debit card. The kiosk will instantly print your receipt, vehicle registration and license plate tabs.
There are a couple of items to consider before using a kiosk:
- If your vehicle requires an emissions test, you’ll need to complete it at least two business days before using a kiosk.
- If you have recently changed or updated your auto insurance, please wait four business days before using a kiosk.
- If your grace period for your renewal has ended, you’ll need to visit one of our six Motor Vehicle locations in Adams County
