Registration Renewal Fees in North Carolina

Renewing your registration will require you to pay a few types of fees: your vehicle registration fee, a late fee (if applicable), vehicle property tax, additional fees and, if you choose to renew through our site, our agency fee. The fees are broken down as follows:

Vehicle Registration Fee:

Late Fee (if applicable):

Vehicle Property Tax:

You will also be taxed based upon the appraised value of your vehicle depending on your county Vehicle Property Tax rate. The tax will charge a percentage of your vehicle value for your county and may also charge additional city taxes as well. You will see the county charge for this tax and may also see city taxes for your fire department, schools, police, etc. The amount will range based upon your vehicle and where you live but can be as low as $24.00 or up to $230.00 or more. The amount range varies so much because it is based on factors unique to you. The amount you will be charged is listed on your renewal notice.

Additional Fees:

Electric Vehicle owners are charged $130 in addition to your registration fees. This additional fee applies to all plug-in electric vehicles. The only exceptions to this fee are low-speed electric vehicles that rely on a nonelectric source of power.

Third Party Agency Fee:

This site charges an agency fee of $29.99 to process your online transaction with the state on your behalf. 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. We also guarantee your satisfaction, so if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
