Vehicle Registration Renewal

If you want to renew your vehicle’s registration, your vehicle either has to have a current registration or a recently expired registration. You may need to produce various documents when you are renewing your vehicle’s registration. This documentation may include:

  • Proof of insurance

  • Valid driver’s license

  • Proof of residency

  • Proof of citizenship

  • Lien release if your vehicle previously had a lien on it

These days, it is common for states to offer their residents the opportunity to renew their vehicle registrations online. Oftentimes, drivers will only be able to renew their vehicle’s registration if they do not need to make any changes, such as updating their address. If they do need to make changes, they will likely have to visit a DMV office in person.
