To renew your vehicle registration in Ohio, you will need to pay the base registration fee, a late fee (if applicable), an emissions testing fee (if applicable), a vehicle tax and, if you choose to renew through our site, our agency fee. The fees are broken down as follows:
The registration renewal fee for a passenger vehicle is $31. If you have personalized plates, you will be charged an additional $50.
If you renew your vehicle registration more than 30 days after your decals expire, you will need to pay a $10 late fee.
Some Ohio counties require emissions testing at least every two years. According to the Ohio EPA, you can receive up to three free emissions tests per year until your car passes. Every test after that will cost $18.
In addition to the base vehicle registration fee, Ohio requires that you pay any applicable local taxes before you can receive your renewed registration. These taxes are flat fees, which means that they are not based on your vehicle's MSRP. Registration renewal taxes typically range from $5 to $25, but some localities do not have renewal taxes at all.

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 bonus coupons, accessible email support, error-free processing, and much more.
