How do I renew AR vehicle registration? Arkansas

AR Registration Renewal Options

Arkansas allows you to renew your vehicle registration in the following four methods:

  • Phone: Call (888) 389-8336.
  • Online: Use the Streamline Auto Renewal (STAR) system on the DFA site.
  • Mail: Send your payment to the address listed on the renewal form.
  • In Person: Go to a state revenue office.
As long as your information hasn't changed since the last time you renewed your car registration you can renew in any of these methods; however, if your information is different, you should renew in person at any state revenue office.

Registrations must be renewed every 12 months. Renewal register car fees vary by the situation, but should be listed on your renewal notice.

Although renewal notices are mailed weeks in advance of the registration expiration date, you must renew on time – even if you didn't receive the mailing.

AR Car Insurance and Vehicle Assessment

Before attempting to renew your car registration, be sure you have the proper insurance coverage and you've paid your personal property taxes. If you fail to do either, you'll be blocked from renewing. Then, you'll have to renew in person or by mail - and provide proof of current compliance.

AR Emissions Testing

As an Arkansas resident, you live in a state with relatively clean air that's mostly free of smog. So, you don't need to worry about a smog check or an emissions inspection, unlike residents in other parts of the country.
