eNotify vehicle registration renewal notice qualifications

License plate/registration renewal notices are emailed, which includes a link to renew your plate/registration online​. 

Payment options:

  • MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover credit or debit card. Your credit or debit card will be charged a convenience fee​ for this service.
  • ACH (Automated Clearing House) payment from your checking or savings account. There is no convenience fee charged for an ACH payment.​

​The first owner or lessee listed on your certificate of vehicle registration must subscribe at least three months before your plates expire to ensure receipt of an email renewal notice for the vehicle instead of a paper notice.
