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. Vehicle registrations must be renewed every year.


Your registration expires on a date determined by your last name, and a late fee of $5 will be charged if the registration is renewed after that date.
