You can now renew your license plate at a Kroger

Forsyth County Tax Commissioner Matthew Ledbetter unveiled new license plate kiosks Wednesday that are available in three area Kroger stores. 

Ledbetter said the three kiosks will allow drivers to renew up to 10 automobile tags at a time, as long as there are no changes to their address or registration information.  One will be in the Kroger off exit 17 on Freedom Parkway,  a second is in southern Forsyth County at the Grasslands Parkway Kroger, and the third is in the newest Kroger, located at Bethelview and Castleberry Roads.  

Drivers can scan their renewal notice, or if they don’t have one scan the bar code on the back of their drivers license, and the system will show all of the vehicles registered to that person. Customers select the vehicles they want to renew, scan a credit card and the system will print out both a new registration and a new tag sticker. Ledbetter said the kiosks, which will be available anytime the store is open, will save drivers the time normally spent waiting in line to renew a tag.

“Whether it’s someone who just can’t get off work to come by one of our offices, or someone who may need to renew a tag before leaving on a vacation, we expect these kiosks to ease the process of renewing your tag considerably,” said Ledbetter.
