When Is Your Vehicle License Up For Renewal? Don’t Wait In Line Anymore!

This is the month that my car license tags are to be renewed.

I never look forward to going through this process of driving to the courthouse and waiting in line.  And waiting.  And waiting.  You wait with the rest who are waiting.  Waiting because no matter when you go there’s always a line.  Waiting because there are county employees who are entitled to have a break or go to lunch.

This year I didn’t wait.  I never went to the courthouse.

I finally got smart and looked at the back of the notice the county sends out with all your information for the vehicle renewal.  You know what it says on the back of that card?  It gives you options for obtaining your tags.

Admittedly, I do remember hearing about these options but this is one of those things a person will never remember when the time arrives.

The result was driving to HyVee at 49th & Louise, flashing the renewal cards at customer service and being led to the machine.  Drivers license, debit card, in and out in less than 5 minutes.  Plus, HyVee is open 24hrs.

It was a good day.  I won’t forget this next year.
