It’s time to renew: 2012 boat decals expire June 30

June 13, 2012

Summer boating is right around the corner, and so is the deadline for renewing boat and watercraft registration decals. In Washington state, all boat registrations expire on June 30.

Don’t let an expired registration spoil your day; remember to renew before you get out on the water.

Boat registrations can be renewed online at the DOL website or in person at a neighborhood vehicle licensing office. Those who choose to renew at an office should make sure to note the registration number on the bow of the boat or watercraft and take that information to the office. 

Due to budget cuts, DOL discontinued paper renewal notices for boats in 2010 and instead offered boat owners the opportunity to sign up to receive email renewal reminders. It’s too late to sign up for an email renewal reminder for this year, but boat owners can sign up online at dol.wa.gov to receive renewal reminders by email in the future.


Boat owners: It’s time to buy new registration decals

Owners of boats and watercraft received a postcard in April informing them DOL won’t mail paper renewal reminders for boats and other watercraft anymore because the funding used to print and mail them was eliminated. The postcard invited these owners to sign up online at dol.wa.gov to receive renewal reminders by email.

DOL will send out boat and watercraft email renewal reminders to those who signed up for them on June 9. To receive one of these reminders, boat owners have to sign up at the DOL website no later than June 8. Owners who sign up after this date will not receive a renewal reminder for their boat until next year. 

Boat registrations can be renewed online and in person at a neighborhood vehicle licensing office. Those who choose to renew in an office should make sure to note the registration number on the bow of the boat or watercraft and take that information to the office.
