You should receive a vehicle renewal statement in the mail approximately one week before the month of expiration. If you no longer own the vehicle, please disregard the notice. If you have moved and didn’t change your address within the County you reside, you may not receive a renewal notice in the mail. Renewal notices are a courtesy from the county, and if you did not receive your renewal statement, the timely renewal of your registration is still your responsibility. Contact your County Clerk’s Motor Vehicle Office.
Beginning June 1, 2009, 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.
To renew your license plates and registration in Douglas County you may renew online, by mail or in person at one of three locations. In a hurry and want to skip the lines, visit a Motor Vehicle Kiosk. Regardless of how you renew, you will be asked to provide current auto insurance, and an emissions test (if required).
