The Division of Motor Vehicles of the Utah State Tax Commission offers a nice, easy to use renewal online service free of charge to the people of Utah. Please be aware that Campers cannot be renewed online and they must renew in person or by mail. To renew in person please visit your local Utah Division of Motor Vehicles. To start the auto renewal process please have your license plate and PIN number on hand. These numbers can be located on your renewal notice you received by mail or by email. Also please make sure that you have completed all the required safety and emission tests and have the certificates or the online renewal process will be rejected. Finally make sure you have a credit card on hand as it will needed in order to make a payment. There is no additional charges for using the online service versus doing the process in person. Please note that you cannot start the renewal process any further than one month out from your expiration date. If you attempt to renew before you are at 30 days or less left on your registration you will be rejected.
If you don’t have your PIN number please provide your last name, plate number, zip, and the last 8 characters of your VIN in order to proceed with the process. If during the renewal process you realize you have not updated your address please call the Utah DMV at 801-297-7780 or 801-368-8824. If registering in person please make sure it is the primary or secondary owner of the auto, kids will not be able to complete the process for their lazy parents. If you run into any problems or have questions it is suggested you use the live chat option that is available Monday through Friday from 7am to 7pm.
