Skip a Trip to the MVD11/23/2021

In early 2022, our Juan Tabo and Cottonwood branches are unveiling an exciting new feature: New Mexico MVD Direct Kiosks! At these select SLFCU branches, you’ll soon be able to quickly renew your vehicle registration and pay traffic citations.


A trip to the MVD isn’t most folks’ cup of tea. With the new MVD Direct Kiosks, you can easily couple your vehicle registration renewal with a trip to an SLFCU branch. Only one of the following identifiers is needed:

  • Current registration document
  • Registration renewal postcard
  • Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), plus plate number or ZIP code

The average transaction takes less than two minutes1 – but time isn’t all you’ll be saving. Kiosk users get 5% off the base registration rate, and aside from any applicable late fees, the service charge for using an MVD Direct Kiosk is only $3.95 plus a 2.3% processing fee for debit and credit card payments. Most importantly, your new registration document and license plate sticker will print immediately, right from the kiosk.


Member access matters most, which inspired our decision to install these new, helpful kiosks in our branches. And while a portion of the service fee benefits the host company or organization, SLFCU will proudly donate its kiosk earnings to selected community organizations. The New Mexico Credit Unions Connected Academy (NMCUCA) will be the first organization to which we donate 100% of kiosk earnings, until our fundraising goal is met.


Traffic citation fees can be paid at MVD Direct kiosks – quickly, conveniently, and without judgment. The kiosks will be open to the public, so tell your friends and family! More kiosk users at SLFCU branches means more donations and a greater impact on the causes in which we believe. Plus, using a kiosk is easy! With key placement near branch entrances and access from Monday through Saturday during branch hours, you’ll be glad you dropped by, especially if you’re pressed for time.
