You can’t renew online if:
  • The registration is expired 75 days or more.
  • You need your stickers mailed to a different address.
  • Your address incorrectly shows within a DEQ area.
  • You moved in or out of Multnomah County and the address on your renewal reminder is wrong.
  • The vehicle is:
    • A tow/recovery vehicle.
    • Subject to Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT).

You may be able to renew a diesel vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) over 8,500 pounds within a DEQ area if DMV has an exemption on file. Contact DMV if you have questions.

Newer vehicles do not need DEQ testing; check if your vehicle qualifies.


You must use the renewal access code on your renewal reminder to renew online. Renewal reminders are mailed out around 50 days before the vehicle’s registration expires. If you do not have your renewal reminder, contact DMV.

You must pay with a credit or debit card.

Keep a copy of the receipt in your vehicle.
