DMV now offering email registration renewal reminder
Placeholder Image

California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) customers can now receive email reminders to renew their vehicle registration. The new online program launched in October 2012 and already has 122,886 customers enrolled.
Customers who sign up will get an email reminder 30 days from the expiration date of their vehicle(s) registration and another email seven days prior to expiration. Due to statutory restrictions, customers will still receive the paper renewal notice in the mail.
To sign up for email reminders, customers must register as a user on DMV’s website, add a vehicle, vessel or motorcycle to their personalized account and “opt in” to receive email reminders. In the email reminder, customers can also click on a link that allows them to renew their registration online in just minutes. If you sell your vehicle you must go into your account and remove that vehicle or you will still receive email reminders.
