Vehicle owners must renew their registration and pay the ad valorem tax every year during the 30-day period, which ends on their birthday. If the vehicle is owned by more than one person, then the birthday of the person's name that appears first on the title is used to determine the registration period. Newly acquired vehicles from casual sales, individual to individual, must be registered within 7 business days from the date of purchase. Newly acquired vehicles purchased from a licensed dealer must be registered with 30 days from the date of purchase.
For more detailed information regarding motor vehicle registration, please read about the Motor Vehicle Division.
