KEEP YOUR HARD EARNED DOLLARS IN ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY!

Bring in or mail your DMV Renewals to one of our four St. Lawrence County Motor Vehicle offices. When the local DMV 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!

HAVE YOU STOP RECIEVING YOUR DMV RENEWALS BY MAIL?

Here is how to fix it:

  1. Go to https://process.dmv.ny.gov/enotification/index.cfm
  2. Enter your driver's license ID number
  3. Click UNSUBSCRIBE

If you received your renewal through email:

  1. Follow the prompts to unsubscribe within the email
  2. Do so as soon as you receive your email
  3. If your vehicle registration is due to expire within 75 days, you will likely not receive a paper reminder

Be aware that you will NOT receive a paper renewal if you have used the online renewal.  Renewals will be sent to the email address associated the registrant.  Visit the Department of Motor Vehicle web page and “Update Subscription,” to start receiving a paper renewal again or follow the prompts in the email.

Services and Information:

To make your trip to our office as convenient as possible please note that all transactions require the driver license of the individual for whom the work is being processed. You may also choose to save the trip and just mail your renewal to one of our 4 convenient DMV locations.
