Registering Your Car in Shelby County

Including Bartlett, Germantown, Millington, and Collierville

By

Annual vehicle registration is a fact of life. Fortunately for Shelby County residents, it's a lot easier and a little cheaper than it is for your Memphis neighbors. If it's time to register or re-register your car in Shelby County (including Bartlett, Germantown, Millington, and Collierville), here is what you need to know.

Applicable Vehicles
The state of Tennessee requires that all cars, trucks, and motorcycles be registered annually, with the exception of antique cars that are used primarily for showcasing as a collector's item.

Vehicle Inspection
Shelby County residents who do not live within Memphis city limits are not required to have their vehicles inspected. Memphis is the only municipality within the county that requires the inspection.

Registration
You may register or renew your registration by mail, online, or in person.
