Vehicle registrations must be renewed every year. Some specialty or personalized license plates have additional administrative costs or fees that benefit the organization sponsoring the plate.

Your registration expires on a date determined by your last name, and a late fee will be charged if the registration is renewed after that date.

Whether registering your vehicle for the first time or renewing your registration, you will pay an excise tax fee and a registration fee. Customers living in certain counties will also pay a surtax or wheel tax.
