If I pay my motor vehicle taxes online, can I register or reregister my vehicle right away?

When payments are made online through the City of Norwich website, payments are not immediately reflected.  Our offices will post the transaction the next business day and proof of payment will be able to be viewed after midnight the day of posting.

If you paid in full using the Electronic Check option, clearance with the DMV will happen automatically in 10 business days.  You can request clearance be done manually after 5 full business days with a call to our office.  If you require clearance with the DMV faster than 5 business days, our office will require printed proof that the funds have successfully cleared your account. 

If you paid in full using a Credit or Debit Card, clearance with the DMV will also happen automatically in 10 business days.  You may request clearance be done as soon as the next business day, but only with a call to our office.  Please call (860) 823-3760 if you have further questions or would like to pay by phone.  (See Fee Schedule)
