Important Changes Related to COVID-19
The Motor Vehicle Division of the Tax Commission is making temporary changes to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Effective immediately, all State DMV lobbies are closed to the public. The DMV will continue to provide limited on-site service via the drive through at specific locations. See this news release for additional information. Please know that we are doing everything possible to address the motor vehicle needs of the public during this pandemic. Return to this website and tax.utah.gov as needed for updates.

Online Motor Vehicle Renewals
The Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is asking the public to process their motor vehicle renewals online. The majority of vehicles in Utah can be renewed at an On the SPOT renewal station or online via Renewal Express. See this Public Service Notice for more information.
The DMV is empathetic to the situation we all face during this difficult time in our community of acquiring an emission test when required to register a vehicle. Unfortunately, the requirements for vehicle emission testing are not governed by the DMV and the DMV has no authority to waive emission testing requirements.
In order to provide additional time to acquire a required emission test you may go online and receive a temporary operating permit prior to completing an emission test. Registration fees will be required. As of Thursday April 2, 2020, online temporary permit time frames have been extended from 15 days to 30 days. Visit rex.utah.gov.
