Online renewals are processed more quickly, with customers receiving their stickers within 3 to 5 business days. Furthermore, renewing online securely using Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express costs the same as renewing in person at vendor locations and Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation service centers.
While renewing online, customers may also update their address, phone number, email address, and designated use areas.
“Our hope is that the online process will save our customers time and money by allowing them to renew their registrations conveniently from the comfort of home, thus avoiding long lines and, for our more rural customers, significant drive times,” said Robert Meinen, Director of the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation.
No taxpayer dollars will be needed to maintain the service. IDPR partnered with Access Idaho, the state’s official Web portal that specializes in electronic government applications, for help with setting up and running the service.
“The ‘vendor fee’ that our customers have historically paid will be used to pay and cover the costs associated with the online transactions,” said Meinen.
Vehicle and vessel owners should look for the renewal reminder postcard sent annually by IDPR as it contains information that is required to complete the online renewal.
The renewal process for ATV’s, motorbikes and UTV’s will be brought online at a later date, due to recent legislation and changes in the registration requirements for those vehicles.
