Citizens of 24 Colorado counties are now able to renew their license plates at a self-service kiosk inside select King Soopers stores on the Front Range, and skip a trip to the DMV.

Colorado MVExpress kiosks are available at seven King Soopers stores along the Front Range, thanks to a partnership between parent company Kroger, County Clerks, and kiosk-maker ITI Technologies. Locations include Arvada, Aurora, Commerce City, Englewood, Fort Collins, Greely and Parker. This brings the total number of DMV kiosks in Colorado to 27. The kiosks in King Soopers stores will be available daily during store hours, generally 5 a.m. until midnight, long after county motor vehicle offices have closed.

“We are thrilled to bring our motor vehicle services to you,” said Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder Matt Crane, who led efforts to bring this technology to Colorado. “Now you can renew your license plates any day of the week where you buy groceries, including on nights and weekends, and skip a trip to the DMV. These new kiosks inside King Soopers stores are a life-changing convenience for citizens.”

Colorado MVExpress kiosks are large blue and yellow machines that look similar to an ATM. You can renew at a kiosk if you live in any one of 24 participating counties. More counties are expected to join the list. Find your nearest kiosk at

To use a kiosk, simply type your license plate number on the touch-screen, or scan your renewal postcard. Pay taxes and fees by check, credit or debit card. (Cash is not accepted at kiosks in King Soopers stores, but is accepted at select other locations.) You’ll receive your tabs and registration on the spot. The transaction is fast and easy. Instructions and voice prompts are available in Spanish and English.

Thanks to a recent upgrade, you can now renew at a kiosk even after your registration and grace period have expired, which will help to dramatically reduce lines at county DMVs at the end of each month.

Colorado MVExpress kiosks are located near the checkout stands in the following King Soopers stores:

Customers will pay a $3.95 service fee per vehicle renewed at a kiosk inside King Soopers. The service fee is $3 at all other kiosk locations. This fee directly pays for the kiosk technology, and is not retained by any county. In addition, customers will pay 50 cents if they pay by personal check, or a 2.17 percent convenience fee if they pay by debit or credit card – which is a lower fee than customers would pay over-the-counter at motor vehicle offices under a statewide contract.

Residents of Arapahoe County will pay no service fee and no check fee to renew license plates through the end of 2018. The County offered to waive these fees while it works to adjust to a new statewide motor vehicle computer system, which has caused slowdowns, technical issues and longer wait times. The fee waiver was extended through Dec. 31. Boulder and El Paso counties have also waived the technology fee for their residents.
