has anyone had a problem renewing on line with show car exemption


I have a message indicating that I cannot renew on line. There is no explanation provided and I have in hand my online renewal papers. Like to the web site there is no explanation in the mailing to deter on line registration. What is confusing is the options provided are reinforced by a statement of plates/reg renewal being discontinued by the branches. I looked at cost for a specialty plate and the site was ready to check me out. May use online or not? And given that the notice lacks any explanation and the mailer says please no branch visits I am essentially left with mailing. Why can't I renew on line?

now you cant get company vehicle plates at your local branch, I was told I had to go to AAA, If you r not a member it is 10.00 extra. Go figure!

Is there a partial refund for plates surrender?

Need to update the links on this webpage. I tried "Calculate My Renewal Costs" and "General License Plates Fee" (both under the "Fees" heading) and neither went to a valid site/landing page.

I want to renew my plates


Can I renew my plates via the internet?

I think the changes are thoughtless. Once again the Republicans find a way to disrespect the less affluent. Many don't have computers to renew online, and are scrounging till the last minute to come up with renewal fees. No matter how hard you try to save, things happen; kids get sick, parents get sick, you need to buy a tire, your power bill increases 300%. The end result is renewing on the last day possible and your sticker and registration come back 2 weeks or more later. Do Indiana police accept, "my sticker is in the mail".

I saw a survey that showed that the kiosks were the second most popular means of renewing tags, so they were removed. Makes perfect sense if you want to impact the least of your citizens.

Indiana police response to "my sticker is in the mail"

The site doesnt work for registration as 2 of the drop down menus are broke. So suprised!

All I wanted was to see how much license plates cost on a car, needless to say it was not a simple task and I did not find out.

i agree now my plates are expired i hardly use the computer and cant find anything on this site this is so stupid. the license branch is so lazy

renew my motorcycle plates

I agree, all I wanted to know is how much it cost to transfer plates from another state to Indiana.

The way that there is no pledge included which chops down the assignment of assessment moreover assists in speedier endorsement of the obtained sum.

Moneylenders offering the aforementioned credits search for certain perquisites on the premise of which the sum gets endorsed.
