However, for a quick guide to matters regarding registration renewals in California, this article will suffice to build a base.

It is mandatory to undertake the car registration renewal process once every year. Unlike some states where the renewal has to be done biannually, California makes it mandatory for a once-a-year renewal. The State of California makes it possible for its residents to go through the car registration renewal process in four ways in order to offer the highest degree of convenience and flexibility. Depending on whichever method suits your situation the best you can choose to renew your car registration by visiting an office in person, by going online or through the mail.
