Your new registration and sticker will be mailed to your address.

Your new plate decal and registration will be mailed to your address after you complete your transaction.

Renew Tennessee Registration at a Self-Service Kiosk

If your registration is close to expiration or you prefer to print your document and sticker immediately, you can use one of the county clerk self-service kiosks conveniently located in participating counties.

At a kiosk, you’ll have to scan your license or current registration and provide your debit or credit card for payment.

TN Registration by Mail

If you’ve received a registration renewal notice in the mail, you can renew your vehicle registration by sending it with a check for the renewal fee to your local county clerk.

Once your transaction has been processed, the county clerk’s office will send you your new registration document and sticker.

Renew TN Registration in Person

If you prefer to renew in person, you may do so at your local county clerk’s office. Bring your payment and:

  • License or ID.
  • Registration card OR renewal notice.
  • Payment for the applicable fee.
