Do I have to pay for title and registration when I get a Flex car?

Your title and registration fees are not included in your Flex lease, so you will have to pay out of pocket for it.

 

What about registration renewal?

Registration renewal is also not covered by Flex. If emissions or VIN inspections are due, you will need to pay out of pocket. I’m Already a Customer

DC: If you’re registered in DC, you have to cancel your vehicle tag registration or surrender your vehicle tags to the DC DMV.
