For most people, the most important possession that they have is their car. Making sure that your car stays registered with the Arkansas DMV should be important to you. Generally, you will be able to get a reminder mailed to you that will give you information regarding when your renewal is due and how much it will be. You will have 30 days to get this done and after that you may have to pay a late fee. Here are some of the ways that you can go about renewing your car registration.
Using the internet to renew your registration
Among the most convenient ways to renew your car registration is by using the internet. The following are the steps you will need to take when choosing online renewal.
- Visit the ARSTAR website
- Put in your renewal number found on your notice
- Enter in the verification code
- Pay the fees that you owe
If you do not have a renewal notice you can go to the “what if I don’t have my renewal number” section to get help.
Renew the registration over the phone

Getting the renewal done in person
If you would rather go in person to handle this important process, then you will have no problem by following these steps.
