Citizens can soon renew license plates at 18 kiosks in 12 Colorado counties


Self-service technology expands on March 5 to allow cross-county transactions


Beginning March 5, citizens in 12 Colorado counties will have the option to renew their vehicle registration at any of 18 self-service kiosks located in participating counties.

“Mesa County is excited to partner with 11 other counties to accept cross-county transactions on our Colorado MVExpress kiosk,” said Clerk and Recorder Sheila Reiner. “Now students, visitors or workers who are in Mesa County but call one of the other 11 counties home, can use our kiosk to renew.”

The kiosks are available only to residents of Arapahoe, Adams, 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.arapahoegov.com/DMV.

Mesa County was the second Colorado county to launch a Colorado MVExpress kiosk last year. This technology has made a difference by helping to reduce wait times and free up staff to assist with complex title and registration transactions.

“Citizens have renewed more than 5,500 vehicles using Mesa County's kiosk; our average wait time in the Motor Vehicle has decreased from 40 minutes in February 2017 to 27 minutes in February 2018,” Reiner added.

The kiosks are blue and yellow machines that look similar to an ATM. To use one, simply type your license plate number on the touchscreen, or scan the barcode on your renewal postcard; then pay taxes and fees by check, credit or debit card. The kiosk will instantly print your receipt, vehicle registration, and license plate tabs. Mesa County customers will pay a $3 convenience fee for every vehicle renewed at a kiosk, which directly pays for the technology. There is no budget impact or cost to other taxpayers for this convenience.

If you have recently changed or updated your auto insurance, please wait two to four business days before using a kiosk to renew. If your grace period for your renewal has ended, you will not be able to renew at a machine and must call or appear in person at your county motor vehicle office.
