Vehicle Registrations

DC DMV Vehicle Registations

District law requires that all vehicles housed and operated in the District of Columbia must be registered in the District unless the owner displays a reciprocity sticker issued by DC DMV. Before you can title and register a vehicle, all outstanding tickets, dishonored check(s) fee, delinquent child support payments or any other debt you owe to the District of Columbia Government must be paid.

Use DC DMV's online Document Verification Guide to determine what documents you need to title and register your vehicle.
