In order to renew your registration online, it is necessary to go to the department of motor vehicles (DMV) section of the relevant state's website. Statewebsites can be accessed by going to the main DMV website and searching.
The car owner needs a number of pieces of information before they can register their vehicle. This includes the registration plate number, the registration class of the vehicle (denoting the type of vehicle), the name of the person or business that should be listed on the registration documentation and a method of payment.
Online vehicle registration can be done at any time up to one year after the expiry of the previous registration, provided it has not been suspended or revoked, and that it has not been inspected in the preceding year.
The process involves filling out a form online with various pieces of information, including the number of the driver's license of the owner, as well as the vehicle license plate number. The vehicle also usually has to pass a vehicle inspection, a fog check or an emissions test. Once the online registration process is complete, it is processed by the DMV. It typically takes about 10 days for the new registration documents to arrive in the post.
