About Expiration Dates
Normally a vehicle is assigned an expiration date when the vehicle is first registered in Alaska and retains that month when ownership changes.
A vehicle that has been expired for less than a full year is charged the full biennial fee beginning with the month the registration expired, even if an individual has just purchased the vehicle and the previous owner let the vehicle expire, or the vehicle has been parked while it was expired.
The registration starts over when it has been expired for over an entire year or when the previous owner was exempt from registration fees (Senior Exemption, Disability Plates, etc.).
