King County Records and Licensing Services is moving to a new location in Pioneer Square, King Street Center, 201 S. Jackson St., in anticipation of a new Customer Service Center opening in early 2023.

The best advice is to plan ahead. Services from the Recorder's Office and Licensing Services may be delayed during this time.

Here are some tips to manage during the move:

  • Plan ahead when doing business with Records and Licensing Services - don't wait until the last minute. Expect some delays.
  • The best way to do business with Records and Licensing is online.
  • For vehicle and vessel licensing needs (tabs, titles, etc.), consider visiting one of the 21 conveniently located Local Licensing Offices.
  • The drop box at the Administration Building (500 Fourth Ave.) is permanently closed.
  • The new drop box is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. inside the gates at:

King Street Center
201 S. Jackson St.
Seattle, WA 98104
on the King Street side of the building between the Metro Pass Sales office and the building entrance

  • Physical records can be received by U.S. mail at:

King County Recorder's Office
