Deadline to Renew Manufactured Home Registrations is December 31st

Registration renewals on manufactured homes located in rental parks were mailed on November 27th. If you did not receive your renewal in the mail, please contact us or visit the GoRenew.com to renew online. It is very important that you renew the registrations for ALL sides of your home. For instance, a double-wide home requires 2 decals, a triple-wide home requires 3 decals. If you pay by mail, you can write one check for all sides. For more information, click here.

Does your driver's license or ID card have a star?
Starting October 1, 2020, your license or ID card must be Real ID compliant, or have a star on the upper right corner, or you will not be able to use the card to travel by air in the United States. You can obtain a Real ID-compliant card at any Service Center, but before coming into an office, review the documentation requirements. If you are not planning to fly in the United States using your card, it is valid until it expires. If your card does not expire until after October 1, 2020, but you want a Real ID-compliant card, you can renew 18 months before your expiration date. Renewal fees apply and may vary based on special endorsements.
