    Basically I moved in Sep 2019, my Registration was due in Feb 2020. Never got any notices and yeah I should have updated my address :-(. I checked at the old address though, and there's no record of a renewal notice...

    But I recovered my "Final Notice" (dated 05/06/20 and it is now 06/18/20) after COVID19 lockdowns and it says the breakdown is:

    Vehicle License Fee (VLF) $143
    Registration Fee $140
    Other Agency Fees $12
    Penalties $146
    Other Fees $22

    According to the information here, it says Late Registration Penalties are $30 for "31 days to (and including) one year". Why are my late penalties so high? And what is the "Other" and "Other Agency"?

    I have a 2017 Toyota Prius Prime in the LA area...

    There are three separate penalties: $30 for late registration; $30 for late payment of the California Highway Patrol fee (included in the registration fee); and for late payment of the vehicle license fee, 60% of the VLF (that is, $85.80), which together add to $145.80, which the DMV rounds up to $146.
    These fees go to the county Service Authority for Freeway Emergencies, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, and for other purposes; DMV’s renewal fee calculator might give you a more detailed list.

    Yes you should have filled out a change of address and also download the Informed Delivery app, it shows any and all mail coming to your house. Good luck with the fees, maybe they can waive some because of the pandemic?
