The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles is reminding all motorcyclists to make sure they renew their registrations before they expire at the end of this month, April 30th.
All motorcycles are registered for one year, with all registrations expiring on April 30th.
“As the weather warms, many motorcyclists get ready to ride,” said DMV Commissioner Mark J. F. Schroeder. “At DMV, we have worked hard to streamline our processes so people can do their business quickly, easily and conveniently. It takes only a few minutes to renew your motorcycle registration online so you can enjoy a safe ride along New York’s many scenic routes.”
The DMV has made registration more convenient through the DMWs website found HERE. Motorcycles must also be inspected every 12 months at a location that has been licensed by the DMV. A blue and orange or blue and gold sign reading “Official NYS Motorcycle Inspection Station” will be posted at official locations. The DMV also offers a list of registered businesses HERE.
Registration cannot be renewed if it is suspended or revoked or if the motorcycle has not been inspected in the past 12 months. If the registration has been expired for over a year, re-registration is required at the DMV office or via mail.
