You can renew at a kiosk anytime – even after the renewal month and your one-month grace period have passed! (However, please note that, by law, a late fee of $25 per month and back ownership taxes will be assessed if you renew after your grace period has expired.)
You can renew at a kiosk immediately after completing a gas emissions test.
Please wait at least two (2) days after a diesel emissions test or after updating your auto insurance before renewing at a kiosk. This allows time for the machine to be updated electronically by testing facilities. The kiosk cannot accept paper proof.
Your renewal postcard will indicate if you need proof of emissions.
You will pay a $3 service fee for every vehicle renewed at a kiosk, or $3.95 at kiosks inside King Soopers stores. This fee pays for the technology and is not assessed nor retained by Arapahoe County. In addition, there is a $0.50 convenience fee to pay by check, or 2.15% convenience fee to pay by credit or debit card.
Note: Arapahoe County has temporarily waived the service fee and check fee through Dec. 31, 2018 for vehicles registered in our county. Our residents will not pay for these fees, but the waiver does not apply to residents from other counties. We have opted to temporarily cover these costs to help encourage our citizens to use the kiosks, at a time when motor vehicle transactions at our service counters are taking longer as a result of the new statewide motor vehicle system.
Colorado MVExpress is a self-service kiosk that offers a fast and easy way to renew your vehicle registration. It is a blue and yellow machine with touch-screen technology that looks similar to an ATM machine. Simply scan the barcode on your renewal postcard, or type your license plate number and the last eight numbers of your Vehicle Identification Number on the touch-screen. The machine will accept your payment and print your registration and license plate tabs on the spot!
You may use any kiosk in the state if your vehicle is registered in Arapahoe County or in another participating county. Please see a list of participating counties.
If you do not live in one of these counties, the kiosks are not available for your transaction. For information, please contact your county motor vehicle office.
Cash, check, credit or debit card are accepted at most locations. However, please note that cash is NOT accepted at the AAA and King Soopers kiosks. Only one method of payment is allowed per transaction.

No, the kiosk will only process a license plate renewal. It cannot issue replacement tabs or change the name or address on your motor vehicle registration. We hope to expand the capabilities of the kiosks in the future.
