There are 4 ways to renew a vehicle registration.

You will receive up to a 5% discount if you use method 1 or 2.

Method 1 – Renew Vehicle Registration Online

Take advantage of receiving a discount on your registration renewal fees by renewing online.
You will need to have the following information ready:

  • Control Number (shown on reminder renewal postcard), or
  • License Plate Number and VIN of Vehicle (last six characters only)
  • Credit card information - You can pay your registration renewal fees using either a MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover credit card.

Method 2 – Use the Integrated Voice Response (IVR) System

The Integrated Voice Response (IVR) system allows customers to renew their vehicle registration by phone and check registration status. You can access the MVD IVR 24 hours a day, toll-free, in English or Spanish. To access the IVR system call:

Toll-free: 1-888-683-4636 (1-888-MVD-INFO)

Method 3 – Mail in your New Mexico MVD Registration Renewal Form

Mail in the registration renewal form that you receive from the New Mexico MVD along with a check for either a one-year renewal or a two-year renewal.  Do not send cash or credit card information.

Method 4 – Visit a New Mexico MVD Field Office

Take your current registration information to a MVD Field Office. Be prepared to provide payment for a one-year or a two-year renewal. The MVD Field Office can accept payment with cash or a check.

Bernalillo County Residents Only - Emission Certificate Information

If you are a Bernalillo County resident and are renewing your vehicle registration, the system will automatically check the air care database for compliance when using the online or IVR(phone) programs.

If you are mailing payment, please include a copy of the certificate.

Late Registration Renewal

Within 30 Days - If you are less than 31 days late in renewing your vehicle registration, you must pay a $10.00 penalty, along with the cost of your registration renewal fee.

More than 30 Days Late - If you are 31 days or more late in renewing your vehicle registration, you must pay a penalty equal to 75% of the registration fee. This penalty is added to the cost of your registration renewal fee.

IMPORTANT - Banks and other institutions may offer online services (often called BillPay) that indicate you can conduct MVD business. However, these services are not integrated with MVD and therefore, are not valid for this type of payment.  Use only the online services offered on this web site or your transaction cannot be processed.

Details for up to 5% discount for vehicle renewal registrations using Method 1 or 2

Method 1 - If you renew your vehicle registration using the online service, you will receive a 5% discount on your base registration fee.  However, due to current contractual obligations with our credit card vendor, MVD must charge a credit card fee of $1.25.  Therefore, your total net discount will be less than 5% depending on the total cost of your vehicle registration renewal.  For example:

  • Registration cost = $60
  • 5% discount = $3
  • Add credit card fee = $1.25
  • Total discount = $1.75

Method 2 - If you renew your vehicle registration using the IVR system you will receive a full 5% discount off your base registration fee. Similar to the online registration, MVD must charge a credit card fee of $1.25.   Please see the example above illustrating how this may affect your total fee.
