Local Vehicle Registration Program
The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) collects the local vehicle registration fee (often referred to as a city sticker or license) in conjunction with state vehicle registration fees for the city of Virginia Beach. When you register a vehicle or renew a registration for a vehicle garaged in Virginia Beach, you will be billed for the state and local registration fees at the same time.
Since the local vehicle registration fee for Virginia Beach is collected at the same time as the DMV vehicle registration fees, customers with a vehicle garaged in Virginia Beach have a number of service outlets available to them to renew their combined state and local vehicle registrations. These include by mail, online, at a DMV customer service center, or at a DMV Select.
