MVRIS License Renewals

MVRIS licenses will expire on December 31 and must be renewed now through the Office of Financial Regulation online REAL system. The Office of Financial Regulation has sent a renewal notice to all dealers (click here for sample renewal notice).

A MVRIS licenses is required per legal entity per county. This means every dealership entity (by tax ID number) must have a license. This single license is good for all stores in a single county where multiple dealerships reside, if they all operate under a single tax ID number/legal entity names. If there are stores outside of the county, who also operate under the same Tax ID/Legal entity name as a Primary MVRIS license, then those stores must be registered as “branch locations. If you have established licenses with the Secretary of State, under different names and tax ID numbers, each entity must then have a separate MVRIS license.

You can look up your license on the REAL System here.

If you fail to renew and continue to do business with an inactive or expired license this can result in significant administrative actions and fines. Renew your license today.
