When you buy or sell a vehicle or require a name change on a car title after a marriage or divorce, you'll usually need to transfer the title. You might have to provide an odometer reading, a vehicle identification number (VIN), and a bill of sale.
A tag transfer can be requested for a used or new vehicle. A tag transfer allows you to transfer your current tags to an entirely different vehicle. When you transfer your current tags to a used or new vehicle, a new title and registration is generated to the next vehicle. This cannot be transferred to another vehicle if the owner is different or if tags are expired. Tags can be transferred with the following documents: a current vehicle registration for the vehicle with the tags, a current vehicle title, a valid insurance policy, a valid vehicle inspection and valid drivers license.
If you own a standard motor vehicle, then you must renew every year by your birthday, with the renewal period beginning 30 days prior to the registration deadline. If a vehicle is registered to more than one person, the date of birth of the first person listed on the registration will be used as the renewal deadline. For motor vehicles owned by a company, the registration must be renewed annually by the last day of the designated month determined during the initial registration.
