Press Release (El Paso County, Colorado)
The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office unveiled the state’s first 24/7 vehicle registration renewal kiosk on October 13, at the Union Town Center Branch.*
The kiosk at the north branch is the second kiosk in El Paso County; the first was installed at the Citizens Service Center Office on September. The indoor kiosk has served hundreds of customers since the go-live. Two additional kiosks will be added to the Powers and Downtown Branches later this fall.
“Vehicle registration renewal kiosks are the next major step forward in providing accessible, customer-centric motor vehicle services for our citizens,” says Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman. “We are not your typical motor vehicle office; we are proud to be an organization that continues to revolutionize the way that our citizens experience government.”
Vehicle registration renewal kiosks feature a touch screen for users to type in their license plate number, or scan the bar code on the side of their renewal card. Customers are then given the chance to review their vehicle record and make a payment for taxes and fees by credit/debit card, cash or check. Once the transaction is complete, the kiosk prints out a new registration, the license plate year tab, and a receipt for the payment.
Residents of El Paso County may use the kiosk if the vehicle registration is in El Paso County, and is for an automobile, pickup truck, motorcycle, coach/park trailer. Customers may renew during the month prior to the expiration month, in the expiration month, and within the 30-day grace period – but no later than the last day of the month following the expiration month.
Kiosks are not the only way for motor vehicle customers to ‘Skip the Line’; customers can renew vehicles online at www.colorado.gov/renewplates, by mail, or by calling the Motor Vehicle Office at (719) 520-6240.
More information about the kiosks may be found on the El Paso County Motor Vehicle page.
