Wyoming Changing Temporary Auto Tags
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Transportation says temporary vehicle tags are getting a makeover to make them more secure and to prevent fraud.
The agency is dropping the green temporary tags in favor of a non-destructible white tag that features a hologram sticker. Two auto dealers in Cheyenne have started issuing the new tags.
WYDOT's Motor Vehicle Services program will cease issuing the green temporary tags on Aug. 31.
Dealers will have up until Dec. 31 to use their surplus of green tags. The green temporary tags are good for 60 days after they're issued, which means the last of the green tags could be on vehicles until February 2019.
Motor Vehicle Services program manager Debbie Lopez says the new temporary tags are designed to prevent fraud.
