Alert: The following services will be unavailable on Saturday, January 5, 2013 from 12 a.m. (midnight) to 6 a.m. CST due to system maintenance.

Go paperless; Receive vehicle registration renewal notices via email

Online services will be unavailable due to maintenance on Sunday, May 24, from midnight to 6 a.m. All channels of e-payment services will be unavailable during this time period. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Go paperless and receive your vehicle license plate/registration renewal notices by email through our eNotify (electronic notification) program. You can also have text reminders sent to your mobile device.

Once subscribed, you will receive email license plate/registration renewal notices for all eligible vehicles. These email license plate/registration renewal notices will include a link to renew your registration online. You must subscribe at least 3 months before your plate expiration to ensure receipt of an email renewal notice for the vehicle instead of a paper notice.

eNotify is available for individuals who are listed first on their vehicle registration. If the vehicle has more than one owner, lessee or driver, the individual listed first must subscribe in order to receive email license plate/registration renewal notices for eligible vehicles. If all owners, lessees or owners subscribe, all individuals will receive email renewal notices.

Most vehicles are eligible for email license plate/registration renewals.

Some vehicles are not eligible for eNotify. (You will continue to receive paper license plate/registration renewal notices for those vehicles). Please check license plate renewal options to renew by mail or in person for plates that do not qualify for eNotify and do not qualify for online renewal.

When you receive your email license plate/registration renewal notice, you may renew your license plate online. Payment options:

  • MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover credit or debit card. Your credit or debit card will be charged a convenience fee for this service.
  • ACH (Automated Clearing House) payment from your checking or savings account. There is no convenience fee charged for an ACH payment.

NOTE: Due to Wisconsin Open Records Law, WisDOT will, upon request, provide your email and/or cell phone number if a valid request is received, except where protected by law. See more information about the Wisconsin Open Records Law, and withholding your name, address, email and cell phone number from the mailing list.
