Registration

The Assessor acts as a vendor for the Idaho Transportation Department and provides two convenient locations for Kootenai County residents to handle registrations. These local auto license offices tend to be very busy around the beginning and end of each month. To avoid long lines, renew your registration online. More information on vehicle registration, fees and requirements can be found online here.

*Vehicle Licensing is currently also open for walk-ins daily. The walk-in line opens at 8:15am and remains open until full for the day. Additionally, even though the walk-in line closes once it is full, it does periodically re-open. The best way to keep an eye on the line is to check back often using the Qless App.  If the walk-in line is open, it will show it on the app as an option to select, if it is closed due to being full, it will not show up as an option.

Schedule an appointment using QLESS while at the dealership to get the earliest time slot available.
