Frequently Asked Questions
Why do we charge service fees?
We contracted with a vendor to provide this service through the Secretary of State. The $7.50 service fee represents the cost associated with the vendor. In addition, we pay a small fee per transaction to credit card providers.
Can I purchase a license plate sticker for a family member?
A family member can only purchase a sticker if the address listed on their ID is the same as what is listed on the vehicle’s registration.
Can I change the address on my registration?
Yes, you can only change the address on your registration to match the address listed on your driver’s license. If the address on your driver’s license is incorrect, we cannot change the address on your registration, but we can still issue the sticker.
