DMV Vehicle Registration

Vehicle Registration

Residents of West Virginia must title and register their vehicles with the Division of Motor Vehicles.

Vehicles without liens may be titled and registered by mail or in person at one of the DMV Regional Offices; or at one of the 130 privately-owned license services located in most communities. A dealer may also take care of the paperwork on your behalf. The registration fee for passenger vehicles and pickup trucks weighing 8,000 pounds or less is $30.

Registrants receive a license plate and registration card. Keep the registration card for all vehicles registered, which should be kept in the vehicle at all times.

For complete information about how to title and register a vehicle, see the DMV fact sheet, Vehicle License Information.
