New York DMV | How to register a vehicle

 This page was updated for COVID-19.

Register and title a passenger or commercial car, truck, motorcycle or SUV

You must register your vehicle

You or your business must register and title any vehicle you own or lease. Registrations do not need to be in the owner’s name, or for only one person. When you purchase a new vehicle through an auto dealership, the auto dealer can register and title the vehicle, and issue plates (and charge a fee for this).

Office procedures have changed due to COVID-19.

We recommend you conduct your DMV business at the office or by mail in the County where you are a resident.

See instructions and reservation information for your county

 

See more information about registering different types of vehicles and special situations.

Step 1: Get your vehicle insured

You must register your vehicle at the DMV within 180 days of the effective date on your insurance ID card.

Learn more about NY State Insurance Requirements.

Step 2: Gather the required documents

If applicable, we will also send you a new title certificate (within 90 days).

All vehicles registered in New York State must get a safety inspection at a DMV-licensed inspection station

  • every 12 months
  • when the ownership of the vehicle is transferred
