Governor Hutchinson today announced that Arkansans can now register vehicles with the state online at mydmv.arkansas.gov. Registration previously required a trip to the Revenue Office, which was a bummer. More than 643,000 vehicles were registered at offices throughout the state in 2017.
“We are proud to be among the first states to offer online vehicle registration,” the governor said in a statement. “Through this new service, Arkansans purchasing a new or used vehicle may conduct all follow-up business from the comfort of their own home. Today’s announcement is a strong example of our transformation efforts in action, improving the day-to-day lives of citizens.”
Those purchasing a vehicle will now be able to do the entire registration process online, including paying sales tax and purchasing a new plate or transfer an existing plate.
It is also possible to order a duplicate driver’s license through the site.
