Keep your hard earned dollars in St. Lawrence County!

Help us help you! Please bring in or mail your DMV Renewals to one of our four St. Lawrence County Motor Vehicle offices. When the local office processes your registration or driver's license renewal, the County keeps 12.7% of the fee. This goes directly to the County's general fund which helps to reduce your County Tax Levy. 

Presently, customers receive their vehicle registrations renewals with a bar-coded return envelope that if mailed goes back to the Utica Office.  Please do not use this envelope.  We can process your renewal and return it to you much faster.  Help prevent St. Lawrence County from losing revenue.  If you prefer to mail your renewal, please place your renewal in a separate envelope addressed to DMV, 48 Court Street, Canton NY 13617.

Thank you for your help and we sincerely appreciate your business!
