ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Renewing a vehicle registration is going to get easier in New Mexico.
The state’s Motor Vehicle Department is piloting self-service kiosks at two Albertsons locations in Albuquerque.
The MVD Direct kiosk has an easy-to-use touchscreen that allows customers to instantly renew and print vehicle registrations.
“We’re excited about being able to offer a convenient way for MVD customers to take care of business with us,” said Taxation and Revenue Secretary Stephanie Schardin Clarke. “Whether it’s online, over the phone, in person or now through these new self-service kiosks, we are committed to finding the best ways to serve everyone,”
The New Mexico MVD Direct kiosks allow customers to pay with a credit card, and print their vehicle registration and sticker in as little as two minutes without visiting an MVD office.
Instructions and voice prompts in English or Spanish make the kiosk as easy to use as an ATM.
There is a $3.95 fee in addition to the registration fee, plus a 2.3% credit card convenience fee associated with the transaction.
However, MVD is offering a 5% discount on the base registration cost on transactions conducted on the kiosks.
The MVD Direct self-service kiosks are currently available from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Albertsons Market, 4950 Montgomery NE, and Albertsons Market, 2910 Juan Tabo NE.
