How Often Do I Need to Renew My Ohio Car Registration?

Ohio car registration can be for multiple years or can be renewed annually. Purchases for multi-year renewal can be from two to five years, with payment required at the time of registration. Expiration dates are normally on the owner's birthday, which makes it easy to remember. Failure to renew on time will result in fees or penalties, and you could be cited for driving with expired registration as well.

Light trucks$46.00 (Non-commercial)
