Renew your vehicle’s registration from your smartphone with county’s new Gov2Go program
May 17, 2018
Trips to the Department of Motor Vehicles, or DMV, are famous for their Kafkaesque bureaucratic difficulties but changes are in the works to make it easier for citizens to conduct their business with the state agency.
Earlier this month Grand County Clerk Sara Rosene released a statement about a new program being implemented by the DMV called Gov2Go.
The new program is an app that can be downloaded onto smartphones.
The program allows citizens to complete many types of DMV transactions, including the renewal of vehicle tags, from anywhere through their cell phone.
Rosene noted Grand County is the fifth county to promote the program to local residents.
"Interacting with government should be fast and easy," Rosene stated. "Many of us live in Grand County because we love the outdoors and all the recreational opportunities. Gov2Go lets our citizens use the technology they already have in their hands to perform transactions without taking time away from recreational or cultural activities or just relaxing."
Those interested in utilizing Gov2Go will need to download the app and then create a profile.
After creating their profiles, users will receive reminders of vehicle tag expirations and will have the ability to complete renewal transactions online.
According to Rosene, users will be able to show their "stored electronic receipts, if needed, until their vehicle tags arrive in the mail."
The press release from the county states the Gov2Go program is not just useful for renewing vehicle registration it also allows citizens to review election and voter information, review government holidays, receive AMBER alerts and make purchases of digital passes for specific federal parks.
