Utah DMV Reinstates Registration Postcard Reminders

Driver’s will once again get a friendly reminder in the mail to renew their registration.

Utahns with cars registered in the state can expect to get a postcard through snail mail. The first ones will go out at the end of April for cars expiring in May. 

The DMV stopped sending out the postcards last September due to budget cuts from the pandemic. During an interview with KPCW in October Utah DMV Director Monte Roberts said the department had to decide between cutting employees’ hours or cutting the paper reminders. 

But the Utah Legislature approved funding to reinstate the postcards. 

Roberts estimated anywhere from 15-20% of the postcards were returned because of invalid mailing addresses. The DMV recommends that drivers update their physical addresses at dmv.utah.gov to ensure the paper reminders are delivered. 

You can also opt out of the postcards and choose to exclusively receive emails. Tax money that would’ve been used on the postcards will instead go to “help protect the environment.”
