Convenient vehicle registration options now available where you shop
Redding – Shoppers in the Redding area can add vehicle registration to their grocery list with the installation of the new DMV Now Kiosk at the FoodMaxx at 1330 Churn Creek Road.
Of the 364 kiosks across the state, including 249 at retail locations, the DMV Now at the Redding FoodMaxx is the northern-most kiosk at a grocery store. Based on the recommendation of Governor Gavin Newsom’s DMV Strike Team, the kiosk is part of an expansion of 200 across the state this year to offer more options outside of DMV offices and create space for people applying for a REAL ID.
“The days of waiting in line at your local DMV for simple vehicle registration transactions are long gone,” DMV Director Steve Gordon said. “DMV Now Kiosks are an example of how we are meeting customers when and where they need to be met, and we’re excited to now offer this service in Redding.”
With just a few taps on the screen, customers can use the kiosk to pay their vehicle registration renewal and receive their new registration card and license plate sticker immediately. They also can file for planned nonoperation status, submit or remove an affidavit of non-use, submit proof of insurance, and pay a $14 vehicle registration suspension reinstatement fee. To conduct a transaction, customers need their registration renewal notice, most recent registration card or vehicle insurance program letter.
The Redding FoodMaxx kiosk – one of six at FoodMaxx and Save Mart locations in Northern California – accepts credit and debit cards (2.1 percent service fee for card transactions). Instructions are offered in English and Spanish, with 10 more languages scheduled to be added in the near future.
Since the first DMV Now debuted in October 2010, Californians have completed more than 11 million vehicle registration transactions using these convenient kiosks. Customers can use the DMV Now locations list or map to find one near them.
