You can use RenewExpress to renew your vehicle or vessel registration and to change your address on file.
Searching for Registrations
To find a registration to renew, you will need a:
- PIN - You can find the PIN number on the registration renewal notice.
- OR both license plate AND birth date - You can find the license plate (also known as "TAG NO") on the registration renewal notice. You will also need the birth date of the person who received the registration renewal notice. If there are two registrants on the notice, either birth date is acceptable.
Do not enter all three fields or any other combination of the data. Click Find.
NOTE: If RenewExpress cannot find the registration, please confirm that you entered correctly either the PIN number or both the license plate and birth date. If your search still does not work, the registration may not be currently renewable through RenewExpress; in this case, please try the DHSMV's website.
Managing Your Registrations
Once you have found a registration to renew, you can search for more registrations to renew.
Some vehicles can be renewed for either one or two years. The default is one year. Select a year from the Years drop-down list to change the number of years for which to renew.
Click Continue to check out and pay for your renewals.
Checking Out and Paying
Credit or debit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express) and e-checks are all accepted forms of payment.
The convenience fee is $2.95 for each renewal paid by credit or debit card. These fees will be displayed before you check out and you may continue or cancel the transaction at that time. The Hillsborough County Tax Collector does not receive any part of the convenience fee. There is no convenience fee for renewals paid by e-check.
Receiving the Registration Renewal
Registration renewals will be sent to the DHSMV for processing the next business day. All successful registration renewals will be sent by first-class mail within 7-10 days.
In some circumstances the DHSMV is unable to renew the registration (for example, if insurance is required but not found). If this happens you will be notified by email, and your payment will not be submitted or will be refunded back onto your card.
