Residents of 12 Colorado counties can now renew license plates at 20 kiosks

technology expands to allow cross-county transactions

Renewing your license plates just got easier. Beginning March 1, residents of 12 Colorado counties now have the option to renew their vehicle registration at any of 20 self-service kiosks located in participating counties.

“This is a great service for Boulder County residents who find themselves in neighboring counties and need to renew their registration quickly,” stated Boulder County Clerk and Recorder Hillary Hall. “Additionally, residents of neighboring counties who work or go to school in Boulder County, such as many CU students, can now renew at the MV Express Kiosk located in the Boulder office.”

Residents who live in any of the following counties can renew their license plates at any self-service kiosk in a participating county:

  • Arapahoe
  • Adams
  • Boulder
  • Broomfield
  • Douglas
  • El Paso
  • Fremont
  • Jefferson
  • La Plata
  • Larimer
  • Mesa
  • Weld

The kiosks are blue and 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 taxes and fees by check, credit or debit card, or cash (cash use may not be available for all cross-county transactions). The kiosk will instantly print your receipt, vehicle registration, and license plate tabs.

If your vehicle requires an emissions test, you should complete it at least two business days before using a kiosk. If you have recently changed or updated your auto insurance, please wait 2-4 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 appear in person at your county motor vehicle office.
