Car Registration & Title Guide

In order to legally operate your vehicle on public roadways, you’ll need to make sure it is properly titled and registered. This includes: 

  • Applying for a new title and registration when you buy a vehicle
  • Transferring your out-of-state registration when you move. 
  • Renewing your car registration before it expires.
  • Applying for a duplicate registration or title if you lose it. 
  • Getting the necessary smog checks and vehicle inspections, when applicable. 
  • Making sure your car is properly insured. 

Many states now allow you to renew your car registration online! Be sure to keep your address up-to-date with the DMV so you can use the online renewal.
