Utah Car Registration

Need to register your car in the state of Utah? We've collected helpful information that will save you some time, and we offer links to resources that will get you going in the right direction. Select from the options below to get started.

1: Get Started with Online Application Services

Online application assistance can simplify the process for many DMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to the free forms and general instructions available from the DMV offices or websites, you will receive value added products such as a comprehensive Easy Guide™ containing information relevant to your service needs. Where possible, we will prepare your DMV forms and/or provide links to DMV online services. You will also receive 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. In addition, you will be able to take advantage of a free membership to DMV Advisors, a state-specific help desk prepared to answer any driver-related questions or concerns you may have. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail, if eligible (read below for instructions)

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a local DMV office

If you prefer to access DMV services in person or your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at a physical DMV office location. Varying DMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local DMV allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.

Renewing Your Utah Vehicle Registration

Renewing your tag is an easy process in Utah, as you are given option of renewing in person, online or via mail.

Utah allows some drivers to renew their registration online, provided that they meet the certain state requirements. In order to register online, make sure you have your renewal notice, safety and emissions certificates (if applicable), license plate number, PIN number (found on your renewal notice) and a credit card to pay the required fees.

To renew your Utah vehicle registration in person visit http://www.dmv.utah.gov/ for a list of DMV offices in the state of Utah. You will also be required to present payment for the required fees and your renewal notice.

You are only eligible to renew your tag by mail if you’re out of state or can’t make it into an office. To renew by mail, complete the instructions given on your renewal notice, and mail the renewal notice, safety and emissions certificates, and a check for the required fees to the address given.

Replacing Your Utah Car Registration

Lost your Utah car registration? You can apply for a duplicate (for a fee of $4) in person at any DMV office. You will need to bring along your drivers license and license plate number. For a list of offices and their phone numbers please visit www.dmv.utah.gov/.
