How to Renew Your Car Registration in Idaho

For most people, driving a car is important due to the freedom that it gives them. In order to pay for this freedom, a car owner will have to make sure that they keep their car registered. The state of Idaho requires their citizens to renew their registration every year. The last thing that you want to do is to let this registration lapse due to the money that it can cost you. In most cases, you will receive a notice when this registration renewal is due. Once you have received the renewal, you will be able to find out how you want to handle it.

Renewing the registration online

For more people, using the internet to pay bills is a convenience thing. The state of Idaho will allow you to renew your registration online. Here is how you will need to go about renewing this online:

  • Go to the ITD Online Renewal Service
  • You will need your driver’s license
  • You will need the registration renewal that you have received in the mail
  • Have a valid credit or debit card to pay the fee that you owe.

Handling the renewal process in person

If you would prefer to handle this process in person, then the state of Idaho will also allow you to do that. Here is what you will need to do when trying to renew your registration in person:

  • Go to the ITD county assessor office
  • Have your driver’s license with you
  • Take in your renewal card that you got in the mail
  • Make a payment for the fees that you owe

The fees you will need to pay

The fees that you will pay for your registration renewal will be based on the age of your car. Here is what you can expect to pay when renewing the registration on your vehicle:

  • Vehicles one to two years old - $48 to renew
  • Vehicles three to four years old - $36 to renew
  • Vehicles five to six years old - $36 to renew
