KEEP YOUR TAX DOLLARS LOCAL!
Get your registration back faster and keep your tax dollars local. Yates County keeps 12.7% of your registration and license renewal fees paid when processed locally, but gets nothing if you mail it back to the State or renew online.
Residents are encouraged to renew vehicle registrations and drivers' licenses locally. This can be done either in person, by local mail or by using the convenient drop-box located just outside the DMV Office's main entrance.
Registrations mailed directly to Utica or Albany using the bar-coded envelopes included with the registration/license renewal notice, do not reimburse Yates County for any portion of the fee paid
