Website Overview

Features of the new website include:
  • Completely overhauled layout - the new website is driven by user groups to help you find all the information you need in one place.
    • The “Motorists” portal includes easy access to vehicle registration and titling, license plates, resources for buying or selling a vehicle, disabled parking placards, information for military personnel, and consumer protection tips.
    • The “Dealers” portal focuses on auto dealer licensing, dealer training seminars, eTAG and more.
    • The “Motor Carriers” portal highlights motor carrier registration, permitting and training.
  • More visual cues - now with more pictures, colors and 3D effects! The presence of images, icons and buttons on the website makes navigation more intuitive and provides an enhanced user experience.
  • Improved search options - in addition to an enhanced global search engine to find anything on the website, we also have search boxes dedicated to specific sections of the website, such as forms, specialty license plates and more.
  • Revamped Specialty License Plates Catalog - specialty plates are now a highlight of the site. We have images of all of them and users will be able to sort them in many ways. Clicking a plate opens a window that provides additional information and a link to place an Order. Charity plates show such information as who the proceeds support and how many have been registered. All within a couple of clicks!


We are excited to bring you this new web experience and hope you like the site.
