Clark County Auditor urges early renewal of December vehicle tabs

VANCOUVER  ̶  The Washington State Department of Licensing is replacing the 30- year-old computer system used to register and license vehicles and vessels. Installation of a new computer system will impact access to licensing offices and online renewals.

To avoid delays in obtaining tab renewals for vehicles, vehicle owners with December tabs are encouraged to renew early. Vehicle owners seeking renewals are encouraged to either renew online by Tue., Dec. 6, or visit a licensing office by Fri., Dec. 9.

  • On Fri., Dec. 9, the Auditor’s licensing office on the Clark County downtown campus will close at 2 p.m. and the subagent offices in Clark County will close at 4 p.m.  Licensing offices in surrounding counties also may close earlier than usual. All licensing offices in the state will be closed Sat., Dec. 10.
  • Online vehicle and vessel services will cease on Tue., Dec. 6, and will not be available again until Mon., Dec. 12.
  • Usual business hours are scheduled to resume on Mon., Dec. 12, with a new computer system.
  • After the new system is implemented Dec. 12, wait times may be longer than usual as operators become familiar with the new system.

“We are asking our customers to please be patient while our licensing agents gain familiarity with the system,” Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey said. “Ultimately, this new system will be more dependable and result in reduced wait times for customers.”

A list of all licensing offices in Clark County with their normal business hours, locations and contact information is attached below.
