    Renew Your Vehicle Registration

    All registrations may be renewed 90 days prior to expiration.

    If you choose to visit a local deputy registrar license agency you will need to provide:

    On initial issuance of the following vehicle classes, the expiration date will be the registrant’s birthdate, an alternate expiration date if qualified (if there are multiple residents at the same address as the applicant, the date of birth of any vehicle owner at that address may be used as the expiration date), or determined by the leasing company’s name if leased:

    • Passenger
    • Non-commercial truck or trailer
    • Motor home or house vehicle
    • Motorcycle
    • Moped
    • Motor scooter
    • Golf cart

    When a leased vehicle is one of the following, the expiration date will be the 20th day of the month assigned by the name of the lease company:

    • Passenger
    • Non-commercial truck or trailer
    • Motor home of house vehicle
    • Motorcycle
    • Motor scooter
    • Golf cart

    Use the chart below to determine the month of expiration:

    See the list of leasing companies that have signed up with the Ohio BMV for electronic power of attorney.

    For a commercial vehicle validation sticker, the month of expiration is determined by the last two digits of the federal tax ID number or Social Security number of the titled owner. Commercial truck registrations expire on the last day of the month assigned.
