Kicking off March 5, the state of Colorado will be providing faster license plates renewals across 12 participating counties. This renewal method is completely advantageous and hassle-free, as Colorado tries to use technology to accelerate transactions.
That said, residents living in any of those 12 counties will have the choice to proceed with vehicle registration renewals at any of 20 self-service kiosks located in any of those 12 participating counties.
Locals could find MVExpress kiosks in any of those 12 counties, including Larimer. Today, cross-county DMV transactions are a reality in Colorado. Angela Myers, Clerk and Recorder, commented:
This is yet another innovative vehicle licensing customer convenience that Larimer County is proud to provide for its citizens; giving them the ease and convenience of renewing their license plates from kiosks located at multiple locations throughout the state. Living in one county no longer has to limit your tag renewal options. If you work, go to school, or visit another participating county, you can use their kiosk to renew your registration and walk away with your tabs in minutes.
Residents located in the following counties will have access to quick renewal transactions: Arapahoe, Adams, Boulder, Broomfield, Douglas, El Paso, Freemont, Jefferson, La Plata, Larimer, Mesa and Weld counties.

Residents from other counties need to keep an eye open, as the number of kiosks will increase across the state later this year.
How does it work?
These yellow-and-blue kiosks look similar to ATMs and have automated features. You could simply enter your license plate number on the touch screen, or just scan your registration barcode to continue with the renewal.
Of course, you have the options to pay fees with debit/credit cards, printing statement of transaction that also includes vehicle registration, and license plate tabs. However, services at kiosks charge an extra $3 service fee for every vehicle renewal. That extra fee pay for the technology in use and does not go to any of the counties.
Note that there are also additional fees including, $0.50 convenience fee for payments with checks, and a 2.15% for debit/credit card charges.
There are also some key requirements when it comes to the use of those kiosks. For those vehicles requiring emission tests, residents must complete the test at least 2 working days before using a kiosk.
Similarly, if you changed or updated your auto insurance details, you must wait at least 2-4 working days before using the kiosk for renewal. Keep in mind that you will not be allowed to use the machine if you have exceed the grace period for your renewal. Instead, you must go to your county motor vehicle office in person.
