We are thrilled to offer it to you as we strive to make our agency a 21st Century DMV. This project is just the beginning of creating alternative approaches to help people reach us in different ways. Our customers are important. We will continue to find ways for you to do business with us without having to visit an office.
Please read this important information
before making your online transaction.
Who May Use Online Renewal
Only vehicle owners whose renewal notice stated that they were eligible. In that notice is a special Personal Identification Number (PIN) needed to access the online system.
Vehicle Owners Eligible to Renew Online
Vehicle owners may renew online provided they have no delinquent taxes, outstanding parking tickets or suspended registration. They also must have complied with insurance and emissions testing requirements.
Address and Other Changes
You cannot make address and other changes to your information at the DMV using this renewal system. You can request a change-of-address form to file an address change with the DMV
. In addition, any other changes to your registration will require that you mail in your application.
Do your registration renewal early enough after receiving your PIN number. Once you complete your online transaction, it may take up to 10 days for your registration to update.
DMV HAS A NEW REGISTRATION RENEWAL PROCESS AND CERTIFICATE
If you do not receive your registration please call the DMV Phone Center.
The registration renewal process and actual certificate has changed. Ten days after submitting this online renewal request, you can verify that the DMV received your payment and that your registration has been renewed by visiting the DMV’s online registration renewal verification website. Please see more information on the new registration process.
If you are leasing your vehicle, you may renew online.
Late Registration Renewals
You may renew online up to 30 days after expiration of your registration, but you will be assessed a $10 late fee if you renew late. Please note that motor vehicles cannot legally be operated without a registration certificate. PLEASE NOTE: Registration renewals are not processed at DMV offices.
