Electric Vehicles

An annual highway use fee will be assessed on each electric motor vehicle registered for highway use in Virginia. The fee is included with registration fees and must be paid at the time of original registration and each year at renewal. The annual highway use fee will be updated yearly on July 1.

If the vehicle is registered for a period other than one year, the highway use fee will be multiplied by the number of years or fraction thereof that the vehicle will be registered. For more details, please visit the Highway Use Fee information page.

Clean Special Fuel Plates

DMV also offers Clean Special Fuel Plates to owners of electric vehicles. For additional details, see Clean Special Fuel Vehicles/Plates.
