So make sure to take advantage of online assistance to prepare for your visit.
Renewing car registration in New York is a process to be conducted through the state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
Click the "Do it Now" button located next to the link to renew car registration on the NY DMV website.
Residents may opt-in to the state Electronic Reminder program and receive DMV registration renewal notices by email or text instead of getting a printed copy through the mail.
After renewing car registration online for the first time, drivers are automatically entered into the paperless program.
Upon return, provide a notarized statement that the vehicle was not used during the deployment, dated copies of deployment papers and a copy of your military ID.
This prevents fees or other administrative actions from piling up.
Drivers who renew car registration in one of the 12 counties in the Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District (MCTD) will also pay a supplemental fee for each year of the car's registration.
