We offer the following services:

  • Vehicle & Vessel Registration & Renewals
  • Title Transfers
  • Replacement Titles
  • Name Changes & Other Data Corrections
  • New Vehicle Registration
  • Disabled Placards and License Plates

You can renew vehicle and vessel registrations online, register a change of address, and download specialized forms.

Tabs and paperwork can then be sent to the Bainbridge office for pickup. All other services must be done in person.

COVID UPDATE:

Due to the current pandemic, please note that our office is running with very limited resources, especially when it comes to answering the phone at (206) 842-3700. We will endeavor to answer all messages within 1 business day.

Please browse these pages for answers to simple questions, but for personal assistance visit the Chamber office – we are prioritizing operations to serve in-person customers during office hours.

Also be aware that all visitors must be met and served at the door, as no-one but our employees are currently allowed within the building due to Covid-related restrictions.

We are also an authorized dealer for Washington State Fishing, Shellfish and Hunting licenses and State Park Discover Passes, but due to the COVID pandemic, we are unable to provide hunting and fishing licenses at this time.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • The Chamber no longer issues pet licenses – these may be obtained from the Bainbridge Island Police Department or your veterinarian.
  • We DO NOT offer notary services, but some of our members do:
  • We do not accept or process individual driver license (vehicle operating permit) applications or renewals at our office.
