Renewing Your Vehicle Registration by MailAfter your first registration, DMV will mail your renewal notice prior to the expiration date of your registration.
To renew by mail:
- Review your pre-printed vehicle renewal notice that arrived in the mail. If your address is incorrect on the notice, you can still renew by mail. If any other information is incorrect, call DMV at (804) 497-7100. Speak with a DMV customer service agent and explain the incorrect information.
- Complete the registration renewal form.
- Multi-year discount: if you renew your vehicle registration for two years, you will receive a $2 discount.
- Enclose your payment and return the registration in the enclosed envelope to:
Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles
Attn: Renewal Center
P.O. Box 27412
Richmond, VA 23269-0001.
Most customers receive their vehicle registration materials within five days, but U.S. mail delivery times vary. Please allow 15 days to receive your decals before contacting DMV.
