In New York, registration renewal notices are typically sent by mail in advance. You can also sign up to receive electronic notices, or look at the registration sticker on your vehicle's windshield to see when you need to renew.
Renewing Your Registration
Drivers can renew their vehicle's registration online as part of the MyDMV's online portal.
- Have your expiring registration ready for reference. You will need your registration class and plate number, as well as the last name of the person on the registration.
- Have your license on hand.
- Be prepared to pay with a valid credit or debit card. The fee will be listed when you log onto the account. If you are eligible for a "no-fee renewal", you must renew in person at your local DMV.
- You can't renew your registration online if it has been suspended, revoked or expired for over one year.
Drivers can also renew their vehicle's registration by mail if they are ineligible to do so online.
- Mail the bottom portion of your registration renewal notice to the address listed.
- Include a check or money order to "Commissioner of Motor Vehicles" for the renewal fee.
- If you do not have the renewal form, use the (MV-82D) Application for Duplicate / Renewal Registration.
Drivers can also visit their local DMV office to renew.
- Bring your registration renewal notice and payment.
- If you are missing the notice, bring a completed Application for Duplicate / Renewal Registration.
