This site allows you to RENEW a current registration online by paying your local excise tax, state motor vehicle registration fee, and a small fee for this online service. New registrations or registrations that have been expired more than 7 months require visiting your municipal office to pay excise tax. If your municipal office is able to complete the registration process, they will do so. If your municipal office cannot complete the registration process, they will instruct you to visit a Motor Vehicle Branch Office, where your registration will be completed. If you reside in an unorganized territory, the complete registration process can be done at a Motor Vehicle Branch Office in person.
