Renewing Your Vehicle and/or Trailer Registration

Renewing your vehicle and/or trailer registration can, in most cases, be completed online, at any of PennDOT's On-Line Messenger services or through the mail.

To renew online you will need your plate number, title number, insurance information, and a valid credit card. At the end of the transaction, you will be given the opportunity to print a receipt and a temporary registration credential. Your permanent registration card and sticker will arrive in the mail within 7 to 10 business days.


Passenger vehicle renewal fees are $36.00. There is a reduced processing fee for individuals who qualify for retired status.

If your county participates in the Fee for Local Use Fund your renewal coupon will reflect the additional $5 fee in the amount due. For a listing of participating counties, please refer to the Fee for Local Use - Participating Counties Fact Sheet.

If you are renewing a truck, the registration fee will vary depending on the registered gross weight.
