Renewal and registration fee information

The exact amount of your vehicle title and registration depends on several factors:

  • Vehicle type – Do you own a sedan, truck, motorcycle, trailer, etc?
  • Vehicle weight – This varies depending on the vehicle's scale weight.
  • Where you live – Do you live in a Regional Transit Authority Tax (RTA) area?
  • License plate type – Do you have a ‘standard’ or ‘personalized’ or ‘special design’ plate?

As you can see above there are several factors that determine the exact amount you’d pay for your vehicle. Below we have options that you can use to get an estimate of what your fees could be.
