Normally, PennDOT sends a renewal notice before the expiry of the vehicle registration. If you do not receive the notice, fill up the MV-40 or Request for Registration form and mail it to the state's Department of Transportation.

Vehicle owners can renew their registrations online in Pennsylvania if the passenger vehicle has insurance coverage, the registration with PennDOT is to expire within six months, and if your name and current address is filed with PennDOT.

Upon accessing the website of PennDOT, provide the eight-digit title number, license plate number, odometer reading and insurance details. If the address is changed, also provide the license number. Then, pay the required fees via debit or credit card and print a temporary registration card. The permanent registration card is sent via mail within 10 days.

To renew vehicle registration via mail, carry out the instructions given on the renewal notice. Enclose the payment along with the notice and mail it to the address given.

To renew vehicle registration in person, locate a nearby messenger service center or Driver and Vehicles Service center on the PennDOT website. Take the renewal notice and payment along when visiting the center.
