Motor Vehicle Renewals:
You may renew your vehicles in the office, by mail or on-line. Starting May 2012 the DOT plans to begin replacing license plates (a rolling-reissue) that are beyond their life expectancy. This would allow the DOT to replace plates that are too old without wasting money by replacing plates that are not. The plates would have the same town and country landscape embossed version, but the sequence will be reversed having three letters followed by the three numbers. They will be replacing ONLY those plates that are older than 10 years.

On-line service is not available if the vehicle registered needs proof of SR22 insurance, any state or county debts are owed, the vehicle has a ½ year license, or is apportioned.
For your convenience a drop box is located on the east side of the Courthouse and can be used for all Courthouse payments.
