How do I register my vehicle?

Sorry, but you’re going to have to go to the DMV. To register a vehicle in California:

  • Visit a local CA DMV office; the nearest are in Napa and Petaluma.
  • Present proof of ownership and a smog certificate.
  • Provide proof of your ID and car insurance.
  • Complete an Application for Title or Registration (Form REG 343).
  • Pay the $46 registration fee, $23 CHP fee, title fees, and taxes.
