Are your license plates expiring soon? If you’re not sure, there are three easy ways to find out:

  1. Check the stickers on your vehicle’s plates
  2. Locate the expiration date on your vehicle registration card
  3. Watch for your courtesy renewal card in the mail

There is a grace period for registration renewals to be completed no later than the last day of the month following the date of expiration. A late fee of $25 will be assessed each month (not to exceed $100) for expired license plates after the one-month grace period has expired.

  • $50,000 per accident for bodily injury; and
