Removal of a DMV Hold

In order to obtain an immediate release of a DMV hold on a registration, your delinquent tax bill(s) must be paid in cash or a bank check. Payment by personal check will result in a 10 day hold before the release is processed; online payments will result in a 3-5 business day hold.

Payments through our authorized collection agency, Rossi Law Office, can be made by credit card without additional credit card fees. There is a 24 hour hold on ALL payments made to the collection agency. Please take this into consideration if you need a DMV release.
