Not a Manatee County resident?  Effective 7/24/17, Out-of-County residents needing to process title and/or registration transactions for vehicles, boats, and mobile homes can only be served at First Manatee South County Tag Agency, located at 5756 14th St W, Bradenton.

Yes. Typically, the month prior to the expiration month, our office will mail renewal notices to Manatee County residents. Boats can be renewed up to 3 months prior to your expiration month and it's not necessary to wait for your notice to renew online at www.gorenew.com. (Note: Most boats expire at midnight on the first registered owner's birthday. If owned by a business, the expiration date is June 30.) Renewal notices are mailed as a courtesy to facilitate renewal. However, it is the registered owner's responsibility to know their expiration date and renew on time, regardless if a renewal notice is received.

For additional information on registration renewals, view our Registration Renewal publication.
