Can my family member or friend pick up my tabs?

  • Friends and family of the registered owner can renew vehicle and vessel registrations on behalf of the owner if they:
  • Provide written authorization from the registered owner (does not need to be notarized) and pay for the registration renewal with cash, or
  • Provide the renewal notice and cash (which implies authorization) or
  • Provide a check written by the registered owner, in the amount of the renewal plus a subagent fee.
  • Always provide photo identification
  • This written authorization from the registered owner will be forwarded to King County Auto Licensing office.

Can I pay with a credit card?

Yes, if you choose to do the Internet Renewal Option for tab renewals, you can go online through the Department of Licensing website (see links), where you can pay with your credit card and choose the option to pick up or have our office mail out your new tabs. This method is allowed because you are paying the state directly.

DOL currently allows the subagency to accept payment by check, cash, and most credit cards. Our office also has an ATM for your convenience.
