Idaho officials are letting truckers know they can change vehicle registration renewal dates to different days as the clock counts down to Dec. 31 when 4,000 commercial vehicles registration tags expire.

“Idaho Motor Carrier Services’ goal is to transition at least 50% of December and January renewals to a different month. This will greatly improve department efficiency and turn-around time for all customers,” noted the Idaho Transportation Department.

On Jan. 31, 500 more commercial vehicle registrations will need to be renewed for those types of vehicles registered in Idaho.

“If your registration expires in December or January, you can change the expiration date to a different time. Idaho Motor Carrier Services offers this option to all full fee (Idaho-registered only) commercial vehicles,” according to a state reminder.

Owners with full fee Idaho-registered commercial vehicles receive an Expiration Date Change form in the mail with their renewal packet to complete and submit if a date change is desired.

“For seasonal operations, you can choose the latest month of the year you will operate and then wait to renew until you start operating. This reduces the registration fees by the number of months you are not operating,” ITD stated. “Moving your renewal to a less busy month evens out the workload for the DMV’s commercial vehicle staff and leads to quicker service.”

Interested commercial vehicle owners can contact a registration specialist via phone or by e-mail at Another option is to view commercial vehicle and motor carrier information at the state website
