Please Note:

  • To pay online, you need the original Suspension Order, that states you are eligible to pay a civil penalty. Your payment does not guarantee that the DMV will restore your registration, or close other suspensions or revocations you have. It is your responsibility to know if the DMV restored your registration before you drive the vehicle. You can check the status of your driving privilege and vehicle registrations through MyDMV.
