DMV Kiosk

So I never tried one of these kiosk machines until the DMV "lost" my registration information last year after I moved to Vegas. I totally blame this city since everything goes wrong over here but yeah. Last time I got my smog test, went online and paid for my registration, then proceeded to wait many-a-weeks for a tag that never came. I complained online and also had to print out some weird extension while another tad supposedly was ordered a second time, but to no avail. After the 3rd attempt and another email, the tag finally arrived. The whole time USPS and the DMV were pointing fingers at each other and both entities were also blaming me for changing addresses.

So this time around I thought I would try out one of these kiosk machines to see what would happen. Surprisingly enough it worked perfectly. I went and got my smog test done, then went to this machine, put in a credit card, got charged $3 extra to use the machine, and bam!, it spit out my registration form and colored decal for the back license plate. This is much better than paying $12 for 2 resubmittals and only receiving 1 copy.

I will point out that I had to go to 2 Albertsons to find a working kiosk and also if you already submitted for a registration renewal online, you can perform a resubmittal using this kiosk. This box has to be the first and only attempt in order for it to work. I totally tried this last year when my registration was lost in space.
