Registration Renewal Fees in Virginia

Renewing your registration will require you to pay a few types of fees: your vehicle registration fee, a late fee (if your registration is already expired), local registration fees for Virginia Beach residents, an emissions inspection fee (if applicable) and, if you choose to renew through our site, our agency fee. The fees are broken down as follows:

  • Mopeds, Autocycles and Motorcycles can be renewed for a fee between $20.25 to $28.75.
  • Commercial and Farm Trucks, Commercial Buses and Non-Commercial Trailers are all renewed at a rate that is based upon their weight.

Late Fee (if applicable):

Local Fees (if applicable):

  • You may be charged a local registration fee if the vehicle you are renewing is garaged in a location that participates in the DMV’s Local Vehicle Registration Program. This fee is typically only charged for Virginia Beach residents. Passenger vehicle fees range from $30.00 to $35.00. Motorcycles pay $23.00. To renew a Trailer registration, you will pay local fees from $7.50 to $25.50 depending on trailer type. Larger commercial vehicles have local registration fees ranging from $24.00 to $85.00.

Emissions Inspection Fee (if applicable):

  • The state of Virginia requires garaged vehicles in certain counties to undergo emissions testing. If your vehicle requires this, you will be charged a $2.00 fee when renewing.

  • This site charges an agency fee of $39.99 to process your online transaction with the state on your behalf. This fee is not required and will not be assessed if you choose to renew your vehicle through the official state portal. There are valuable benefits associated with this fee, including bonus coupons, accessible email support, error-free processing, and much more. We also guarantee your satisfaction, so if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
