Registering a Vehicle with the DMV
How to Register a Vehicle with the DMV
For specific instructions on how to register your vehicle, please visit our Vehicle Registration page and select your state. You’ll also find information about vehicle registration fees, and how to replace a lost or damaged vehicle registration sticker.
Renewing Vehicle Registration
What you’ll need to bring with you can differ a bit from state to state. You’ll normally need to show your vehicle title (or lien certificate), as well as Proof of Car Insurance, and additional documentation to prove your identity at your nearest DMV office location. Depending on your state, you may also be responsible for showing other paperwork, like an Emissions Check at an Inspection Station, Odometer Disclosure Statement and a Bill of Sale.
For specific details about renewing your registration, please visit our Registration Renewal page.
Visit DMVGO’s DMV Forms Directory to locate your required DMV forms (if available online).
Registering an Out-of-State Vehicle?
Registering an out-of-state vehicle is slightly more complicated than your normal registration process.
For information on registering an out-of-state vehicle in your new state of residence, please select your state above to find specific details about how to proceed on the appropriate Car Registration page.
You may need to obtain a driver’s license from your new state, as well as Car Insurance from an insurance provider in your new state before you register your vehicle.
Additional fees and taxes may also be required.
