Registration Renewal Fees in Ohio
Renewing your registration will require you to pay a few types of fees: your vehicle registration fee, a service fee, your local and county tax (if applicable), a credit card service fee and, if you choose to renew through our site, our agency fee. The fees are broken down as follows:
Vehicle Registration Fee:
- To register a passenger vehicle, you will pay $34.50 with possible additional fees if you have personalized plates (an additional $50 and retention fee of $10) or initial reserve (an additional $25).
- Moped registrations are $24.50 and Motorcycles are $28.50. Registration renewals are $49.50 for Motor Homes.

- Commercial and Farm Trucks, Commercial Buses and Non-Commercial Trailers are all renewed at a rate that is based upon their weight.

Local and County Tax:
- You may also incur local or county fees at the time of your registration. The fees are determined solely based on your county of residence and range from $0 to $20.
Third Party Agency Fee:
- This site charges an agency fee starting at $17.75 to process your online transaction with the state on your behalf. This fee is not required and will not be assessed if you choose to renew your vehicle through the official state portal. There are valuable benefits associated with this fee, including One-Click Renewal, Night/Weekend email support, quick status checks, error-free processing, BMV advocates and much more. We also guarantee your satisfaction, so if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
- On the checkout page for your renewal, you will see the above listed fees detailed according to your county and vehicle specifications. The total cost to you will be clearly itemized for you prior to payment.
- Please note that the fees that you will see associated with your vehicle on this website are an estimate based upon the information you have provided to us (car type, vehicle location, etc.) and the final amount charged to your card may vary slightly when we process your transaction with the state.
