Does my insurance still need to be electronically verified to renew a license plate or watercraft registration online?

Check your renewal notice for your options when renewing. Our Electronic Insurance Verification program makes renewing online possible because your proof of insurance has already been verified through the updated electronic files sent by participating insurance companies.

If your renewal notice states "Proof of insurance required" your registration can be renewed by mail or in person at a Secretary of State office. Please enclose or present a copy of your current valid proof of insurance. The Secretary of State's Office will cancel a registration for submission of invalid or fraudulent insurance.

Insurance does not pertain to watercraft renewals.
