New Legislative Changes at Virginia DMVs

In the Commonwealth, because of the 2018 General Assembly results, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is alerting customers of new legislation that affects them.
Most notably the Vehicle Title Fee for Virginia has increased from $10 to $15. The Title Fees in the Commonwealth have not changed since the 1980s and are still below the Title Fee costs in nearby states.
The Vehicle Registration Extensions for those customers with outstanding tolls House Bill 1069/Senate Bill 575 enables Virginians whose ability to renew their expiring vehicle registration has been withheld due to outstanding road tolls to request a one month registration extension if the current registration period will expire within the calendar month. This extension will allow the customer time to settle their debt without impacting their ability to use their vehicle. All applicable customers must pay a $10 Administrative Fee for a one month renewal. Only one extension will be allowed for any one vehicle registration period.
Finallly Temporary Vehicle Registration for some customers with delinquent taxes House Bill 489 allows persons with delinquent taxes or fees, including local vehicle fees, delinquent tangible personal property tax, or parking citations to register a newly purchased vehicle for up to 90 days. This will allow individuals to purchase a vehicle, but grants time to satisfy delinquent taxes or fees. Once the taxes or fees are paid, the DMV may issue a full one, two, or three year registration.
