DOL saves enough paper to double the height of the Space Needle – and saves customers time with online options


Nearly 400,000 Washington vehicle owners have signed up for e-mail car tab renewal reminders, allowing them to renew with a couple of mouse clicks from home. We’re working to make things more convenient and efficient for citizens. It’s all a part of our 21st Century Business Model.

 Sending paper renewal notices costs about $3.5 million every year. Not everyone has access to e-mail, but a significant amount of vehicle owners do. You can sign up at our website, and you’re just a couple clicks away from renewing online the next time your tabs are due. It’s convenient and it saves money.

Through this process and a number of others that we’ve started, we also saved a lot of paper in 2010. Equal to twice the height of the Space Needle!

We’ve been working to expand our online offerings for some time to reduce your need to come to a driver licensing office. Last year alone, about 220,000 people took advantage of our website to renew their driver license.

Some of our other online services include:

  • Get a copy of your driving record
  • Replace a lost or stolen license or ID card
  • Change the address on your vehicle registration
  • Renew your boat registration

    IF BOAT LICENSING IS SAVING SO DANG MUCH $$$ WHY CAN’T YOU REDUCE MY FEES BY THE $5 ????

    WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM GOVERNMENT ????
