Before you begin, you must:

  • Have the last 5 digits of your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for a vehicle or the Hull Identification Number (HIN) for a vessel/boat.
  • Have your Smog certification filed with DMV, if needed
  • Have a renewal notice that shows your current address OR confirmed through the Change of Address system that your address has been updated.
    IMPORTANT: If you have recently submitted or intend to submit within the next 7-10 days an online change of address, we recommend that you mail-in your renewal notice and change your address on the back of the form.
