Information for new residents or new vehicle registrations
Connecticut towns and cities receive motor vehicle registration information from the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicle twice yearly: in December for vehicles registered as of October 1st and in November for vehicles registered between October 2nd and July 31st. Because the City of Norwalk receives information from the DMV only twice yearly, a new or updated registration may not be in the City’s tax database when you attempt to register online for a Resident Pass. Should this happen, please visit the Department of Recreation and Parks at Norwalk City Hall to register in person and bring a copy of the current motor vehicle registration with you.
Boat Sticker Registration Form
Boats are also required to have a Norwalk-issued sticker for Launching purposes. To obtain a boat sticker, fill out a boat sticker registration form and bring the registration form along with your current boat registration to the Recreation and Parks Department. Boat stickers will not be issued to P.O. boxes or to a business.
