You can now receive e-mail reminders and text messages from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles when your vehicle registration or inspection is due to expire.

Motorists can sign up online, by mail when they renew their registration or at their local DMV office.

The DMV will automatically enroll anyone who has completed an online transaction in the past two years.

Registration and license e-reminders will be sent approximately 90, 60, and 30 days prior to expiration and again at expiration. Inspection reminders will be sent on the first of the month of expiration, the 15th of the month of expiration and again when the inspection expires.
