Vehicle License Fees

In 2007, Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors adopted a license fee tax. This fee is assessed to all actively registered vehicles as of January 1 of the tax year. No adjustments are made to the license fee assessment due to vehicle being sold after January 1. The fee is assessed based on Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) information regarding the garage jurisdiction. It is imperative that you review your vehicle registration and verify that this information is correct. Town residents are not liable for the county license fee. Each town collects their license or decal fee.
