When you purchase or renew any Indiana license plate, you will pay registration fees and taxes determined by the year and make of your vehicle, and your county and municipality of residence. If you purchase or renew a Special Group Recognition license plate (found under the College & University and the Organization tabs), you may pay a group license plate fee that is distributed back to the sponsoring organization and a supplemental fee. The group fee is sent to the organization who determines what the funds are used for. Customers may contact the organization with questions regarding these funds.
Most license plates are available to renew online. Vehicles requiring additional forms upon renewal cannot be renewed online.
