Permit Auto-Renewal Service (Auto-Renewal) is a feature that will allow a customer to enroll eligible permits in a service that will automatically renew them for the next permit year. This process was designed to ensure a customer never has an expired permit when they need it most.
Auto-Renewal is a voluntary feature that can only be activated by the customer. Auto-Renewal can be turned on for eligible permits that are currently active on a customer account in the “Manage Your Account” section and under “Manage Your Auto-Renewal Settings,” as well as during the purchase of an Auto-Renewal eligible permit on the Internet. Instructions on how to turn on Auto-Renewal are provided below.
Auto-Renewal can be turned off at any time by logging into “Manage Your Account”, and then going to “Manage Your Auto-Renewal Settings.” Instructions on how to turn off Auto-Renewal are provided below.
