At its simplest, vehicle registration is the registration of a motor vehicle with the local DMV. The purpose of vehicle registration is to set a link between a vehicle and the owner of the vehicle.
In the US, people are required to register their vehicle before hitting the road, which is a process that applies to drivers who just purchased a new or used vehicle.
It’s a requirement that makes it easier for authorities to work on taxations and prevent/track criminal activity. The safest way to avoid penalties is to complete the vehicle registration and fulfill registration renewals with anticipation.
It doesn’t matter what brand of vehicle you own, drivers must complete registration and proceed renewals by law.
For that purpose, eTags has created an infographic to spotlight key registration renewal facts. Here are the most renewed registrations by vehicle make.
Note that this infographic covers registration renewals that took place in 2017, displaying the 20 most renewed registrations by car make.
Look at those numbers and check if you own any of the vehicles outlined below.
Looking at the figures
First, Toyota appears to be the most common registered vehicle with a total number of 24,849 registration renewals in the country.
In 2017, Statista found that the number of people living in households that own a Toyota in the United States amounted to 44,36 million.
The figures don’t lie and it makes sense to see why the numbers are high. Know that Toyota is a leading car manufacturer selling imported cars in the US.
Second, the all-American Ford and Honda came closer with 20,948 and 18,545 registration renewals respectively.
This makes sense since Ford – the Detroit-based car manufacturer – ranked number 1 for selling around 2.5 million vehicles to Americans in 2016.
Lastly, the German Audi ranked 20th with 2,143 registration renewals, along with Infiniti, ranking at 19th with 2,179. In fact, Audi represents less than 10% of the total number of registration renewals for Toyota.
Have you found your car make on the list? Note that the US requires everyone to register their vehicles either in person or online. Registration and registration renewals are compulsory, and they need to be taken care of promptly.
