All registrations require proof of insurance and mileage. Previous Registration is sometimes required for certain transactions, Example: transfer of plates, previous registration completed at a BMV Office or another Municipality.
If you are required to file an SR 22(high risk Insurance) or your privilege to register is under suspension, you will be required to pay your excise tax before you can go to BMV to complete your registration. COVID19: During this time the DMV is allowing Municipalities to complete SR22 registrations in our office. We are able to verify via email with the DMV your SR22, so please contact our office prior to coming in so that we may receive the authorization to complete your registration here.
