Any vehicle(s) added during the term of the registration must be registered by submitting a complete original application marked "Added Vehicle." The expiration date for the added vehicles will be the same date as the expiration date of the existing registration.

Do not mark more than one choice under this section. If the application represents a renewal or an added vehicle, enter the registration number from the previously-issued registration.
