PINELLAS COUNTY, FL – Pinellas County residents now have more options when it comes to renewing motor vehicle registrations.

Pinellas County Tax Collector Charles W. Thomas is proud to announce the addition of new self-service kiosks, bringing another level of convenience and efficiency to customers.  Using touch screen technology, the kiosk allows customers to pay by credit card and get their vehicle registration and decal in less than two minutes.

The kiosks are located in various Tax Collector offices and at select Publix locations throughout the county.  The new service option is made possible through a partnership between the Tax Collector’s office, Publix, and Intellectual Technology, Inc.

“Providing top-notch customer service is always our priority.  As a role model organization, we saw this partnership as a benefit for our customers,” said Thomas. “Customers now have the opportunity to renew vehicle registrations on demand, without having to make an appointment.”

Voice prompts and written instructions in English or Spanish guide customers through the process, making it easy to use.  There is a nominal 2.3% credit or debit card transaction fee included in the transaction total.

Registration renewal self-service kiosks are available at the following locations now, with additional locations to be announced in the coming weeks:
