What is DMV Now?
DMV Now is a freestanding self-service terminal that uses touch screen technology to guide you through the registration renewal process.
What does it do?
DMV Now allows you to complete your registration renewal or file for planned non-operation (PNO) status without waiting in line. Multiple payment methods are accepted and a registration card and sticker or PNO acknowledgment is printed at the terminal after the completion of your transaction.
What can be renewed using DMV Now?
- Coach and Park model trailers
- Commercial vehicles that do not pay Commercial Vehicle Registration Act (CVRA) fees
DMV Now cannot do the following:

- Process a change of address
Where can I find one?
DMV Now is available inside select field office and retail locations during regular business hours.
What do I need?
Bring in your 8 ½" x 11" renewal notice DMV sends you each year. Please make sure there is a Renewal Identification Number (RIN) on the top left of the renewal notice. You may also bring your current registration card.
