To renew vehicle registration tags at the DMV, the driver must produce his registration application or renewal notice. Some DMV locations also request proof of vehicle insurance and a photo ID when renewing at the DMV office. Depending on the office, renewal for tags might also be available online.
The basic instructions for renewing tags on a vehicle are to fill out the application that came with the renewal notice and include the vehicle information, such as the license plate number and VIN numbers. The driver’s license number is typically required as well. The driver needs to submit the renewal fee with the documentation. Some vehicles require a smog check as well.
