Ohio Boat Registration Renewal

For your protection, this is a secure web site administered by the State of Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

To renew your boat registration online, you need a 2015, 2016 or 2017 mail renewal form (for PIN), your boat number, a Visa or MasterCard for payment, and a valid email address. You may renew multiple boats with one credit card transaction.

You may change your shipping address before completing your transaction, but boat and boat owner information cannot be corrected or changed over the Internet. Please see your local registration agent if you need to change boat information.

NOTE: Current, valid decals must be displayed on your boat for legal operation. A current, valid registration must be carried on board. Please see your local registration agent if you need your decals and registration immediately.

If you have already submitted an online payment for a boat registration but have not received a confirmation email, or if there is some other problem, please contact us. Include your name as printed on your registration renewal letter, boat number, the date and time of your transaction, and your phone number.

Once the secure transaction is processed, boaters should receive their registration decals within 15 working days. If you do not receive your registration and decals, contact us. Failure to contact us within 30 days of the transaction will result in the need to purchase duplicate registration card and decals.
