State waives fees on online vehicle renewals for one year

TOPEKA – Kansans looking to save time and gas by eliminating a visit to a county treasurer’s office can now take advantage of the state’s convenient online option for renewing vehicle tags without credit card or electronic check processing fees.
For the next 12 months, beginning in August, convenience fees will be waived so more Kansans will be encouraged to experience the ease of renewing online at
“With so many people today using their computers, tablets, and cell phones to do everything from shopping to sharing photos, we want to make sure they also know they can conveniently renew vehicle registrations from the comfort of home,” Director of Vehicles Donna Shelite said.
“This is a great opportunity to try this renewal feature provided by the state for free,” said Barton County Treasurer Kevin Wondra. He added that if anyone has questions or problems, his office can help.
Most people have three options for renewing their tags. They can visit their county treasurers, renew by mail, or renew online.
The online renewal option is available to 1) anyone whose vehicle is registered in Kansas, 2) whose address on the renewal is current, and 3) who has vehicle insurance as required by law.
The online service requires a personal identification number (PIN), which is printed on the registration renewal notices Kansans receive in the mail.
However, Wondra cautioned, if a resident uses the online renewal, they won’t be able to wait until the last day or two of the month to do the renewal and still expect to get their decals and registrations on time. “We process all web renewals the day they come in, but the customer has to allow time for the post office to deliver the decals and registrations to them, which usually is one to two days time.”
