County Clerk and Recorder Lori Mitchell announced today that her office will be following a new procedure concerning renewing motor vehicle registrations to be in compliance with the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act.

Historically, the clerk’s office allowed a person who was not listed on the registration to renew and pay for a vehicle registration by just providing a license plate number.

Going forward, if the customers are not on the registration they will need to bring the renewal card with them to receive the new registration and tabs, otherwise the registration card and tabs will be mailed to the address of record.

Clerk Mitchell noted that her office takes the privacy of all citizens seriously and this new procedure may be an inconvenience but will help protect citizens, which is the goal of the law.
