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.

Missouri Car Title Transfers

There are a number of key factors that go into the sale of a vehicle, but there is no document as important as the car title. A bill of sale can be used in addition during a transaction, but the car title is crucial. Essentially, this document represents your ownership of the vehicle. It shows that you are the legal possessor of the car. And in the state of Missouri, there are two different situations that involve the titling of a car. When buying from a dealership, titling is the responsibility of the seller. However, when you're buying from a private vendor, it is up to the buyer to get the vehicle titled. And you need to provide the state of Missouri notice that you are doing so with this form: http://dor.mo.gov/forms/5049.pdf.
