Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What happens if I don’t buy a 2017 annual license?

A: If you are an Idaho resident and don’t buy an annual license in 2017, you will pay 20% more for all licenses, tags and permits in the future. However, if you still want to participate in Price Lock, you can purchase any 3-year resident license while the program is active and receive all the benefits of Price Lock.

Q: What if I have a 3-year license and want to be part of Price Lock?

A: If you are a resident and have a 3-year license that is valid in 2017, you are automatically locked in for the time-period of this license. Once the 3-year license expires, you will need to buy a new license to remain in the Price Lock program.

Q: Will the cost of licenses, tags or permits go up on items I did not purchase in 2017?

A: No. If you buy a 2017 annual license, this allows you to buy any and all other licenses, tags and permits in 2018 at 2017 prices. Continue to buy an annual license and 2017 prices apply to every year the Price Lock program is active.
