What if I did not receive a CA registration renewal notice? California
Registration Renewal NoticeIf you never got a vehicle registration renewal notice from the California DMV, call them at 1-800-777-0133. They will tell you:
- What to pay.
- How you may renew; mail or in-person DMV registration.
- The documents you must provide, such as a certificate proving you had your vehicle’s smog and emissions checked.
If you moved and did not notify the DMV, you will also need to file a Change of Address form.
Emissions TestingEvery other year certain counties, or residents of certain zip codes, are required to get a smog check inspection before a car registration. When you call, ask if your vehicle needs emissions testing this year.
HINT: There is also a list of affected counties and zip codes on the CA DMV website.
Late FeesNot getting a renewal notice is not a valid reason not to renew your car registration. The DMV will charge you late fees ranging from 10 to 160% of the Vehicle License Fee, even if it’s only one day late.
