1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Online application assistance can simplify the process for many DMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. Where possible, we will prepare your DMV forms and/or provide links to DMV online services. You will also receive 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. In addition, you will be able to take advantage of a free membership to DMV Advisors, a state-specific help desk prepared to answer any driver-related questions or concerns you may have. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the DMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local DMV.

3: Via a DMV office

If you prefer to access DMV services in person or your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at a physical DMV office location. Varying DMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the DMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your local DMV allows you to make a personal appointment. Read more below to see if an in-person visit is either preferred or required.




Name Change On Missouri Car Registration

If your name has changed recently, then it is very important that you make note of this alteration in your car registration. The state of Missouri requires that your vehicle registration be up to date in every aspect, and this includes the name that shows up on it. As this is the name that is located in their database, not notifying them of a modification can result in mix-ups that can cause trouble for you. Furthermore, if you change your name on the car title, the state requires that you apply for a whole new title with the following form: http://dor.mo.gov/forms/108.pdf. After paying the associated fee, your name will have been successfully changed.
