If you pay your vehicle taxes on time, you will receive your registration renewal sticker in the mail (usually within 10 days of payment). Please make sure that your address is correct and that your insurance certification is provided when required. The registration renewal fee charged by the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles appears on your tax bill every other year. If you pay your vehicle taxes after the expiration of your license tag, you will need to go to a local Department of Motor Vehicles office to show your paid tax receipt. Then, a new sticker will be issued to you in person. If this occurs in a year when you were charged a renewal fee on your tax bill, the Department of Motor Vehicles will charge you a late renewal fee at that time.
