Vehicle Licenses

License Renewals
Vehicle licenses expire annually in Washington State. Currently, renewal notices are mailed to owners by the State Department of Licensing. The department is encouraging vehicle owners to receive license renewals by email, as it is likely, in the future, that renewal notices will no longer be mailed. To register your email with the State, please contact the San Juan County Auditor’s Office at 360-378-2161.

Vehicle licenses may be renewed online, by mail, or in person at the San Juan County Courthouse. To renew your vehicle license online, go to the Vehicle and Boat Registration section of the Department of Licensing website.

Instructions for renewing by mail are included with the mailed renewal notices.
