Help Keep Our Hard Earned Dollars in Monroe County!

You Can Help!

Get your registration and driver’s license back faster and keep your taxes in check with Renew Monroe!

Renew Monroe! is an initiative to keep your hard earned dollars working right here in Monroe County. 

By renewing your vehicle registration and driver’s license with a local DMV office, you are directly helping to keep your property taxes in check.  Each time you use a local DMV office, 12.7% of the fee is kept in our community. 

Let's think about it.

The cost to renew a Class D standard driver’s license is $64.50 and when processed in a local DMV in Monroe County, $8.19 or 12.7% stays here at home.  Additionally, a vehicle registration of $75.00 keeps $9.53 in Monroe County.  If every resident in Monroe County renewed their vehicle registration and driver’s license in a local DMV office, Monroe County would keep over $3.2 million dollars annually working here at home.  This is real money!  When you do business online with the State DMV or by mailing to the State, your dollars go directly to Albany.

  • You keep your hard-earned money in Monroe County and help keep your taxes in check.
