1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services 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. 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

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 DMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local DMV office. 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 DMV allows you to make a personal appointment.

Utah Car Title Transfers

Until the title has been transferred to you, the vehicle you purchased from a private seller is not completely yours. There are multiple steps to complete to transfer vehicle title in Utah, starting with the seller providing the original certificate of title or an approved duplicate. The buyer should check the title in several ways, including that the VIN matches the car and that the seller has signed in the right spot to release ownership. If there are any liens on the title, the buyer needs to check that the lienholder has signed a release. The buyer will need to fill out a form for a new title and check for any necessary safety and emission inspections.
