Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How does Price Lock save me 20 percent in 2018?

A:  In 2018, the cost of resident licenses, tags, and permits will be going up 20 percent, except for those who participate in Price Lock. If you have a 2017 annual license, you are part of Price Lock. This means you will continue to pay 2017 prices for all licenses, tags, and permits in 2018, not the 20 percent increase. Plus, you can continue to pay 2017 prices for at least five years, as long as you buy an annual license each year.  This is the Price Lock promise.

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

A:  A 2017 annual license is your key to ‘locking’ in 2017 prices, as part of Price Lock.  If you don’t purchase a 2017 annual license, you will pay the higher price for resident licenses, tags, and permits in 2018. But, if you missed buying a 2017 annual license, don’t worry. You can still participate in Price Lock by purchasing any 3-year resident license while the program is active and receive all the benefits of Price Lock.

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. Plus, if you continue to buy an annual license every year, 2017 prices apply to every year the Price Lock is active.
