  • Costs are listed in the DMV Fee Table

Online

Municipal Tax Restrictions: If you pay property taxes to one of the following towns for your vehicle; Barrington, Central Falls, Exeter, or Warren you may not use the online renewal service due to municipal tax clearance requirements.

Please Note: Leased vehicles can now be renewed online. However, leased vehicle owners will not be able to update or change the address on the registration.

Outstanding Taxes

  • Check with your Tax Assessor to see if you owe property taxes on your vehicle. If you have outstanding taxes, the DMV will not be able to renew your registration. Pay your property tax and have the Tax Assessor stamp your renewal form as proof of payment.
