Treasurer Renew Vehicle Registrations

How to renew your vehicle registration


When renewing a vehicle registration online, you will need your plate number and your pin number, which can be found on your renewal notice. If your renewal notice has a “stop” on it, the vehicle registration may not qualify for online renewal. There are additional fees for paying online (see fee table below).
