Getting a car registered is an essential part of obeying the laws of a state. If you are new to state of Kansas or are a current resident that has just bought a new car, then you will need to take the time to get the vehicle registered. For those that are new to the state, you will have 15 days from the time you move to the area to get your vehicle registered. The same amount of time applies for current residents that are buying new vehicles.

The only way that you will be able to register a new vehicle is by going in person to the county clerk’s office. There are a number of things that you will need to bring with your to the county clerk’s office to ensure that you get the registration done in one trip. Here is a list of things to bring:

  • The vehicle will first have to be inspected and approved by the sheriff in the county
  • You will have to complete the Application for Kentucky Certificate of Title/Registration
  • The title to the vehicle
  • Current registration if coming from another state
  • Proof of car insurance that has a minimum of $25,000 bodily injury coverage
  • Driver’s license
  • Proof of payment on all of your taxes from the previous state you lived in

If the vehicle has been purchased from a dealer, you will need the following items to register it:

  • Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin with your name on it
  • Proof of insurance
  • Your social security number for verification of the names on the title
  • Lien statement

When registering a car, here are some of the fees that you can expect to pay:

  • Title Fee is $9
  • If you want the title the next day it will be an additional $25
  • The transfer fee is $17
  • Yearly car registration fee $21
  • Title lien statement fee $22
  • The notary fee will vary depending on the county you are in
  • The vehicle inspection will be $5
  • The usage tax that you pay will be six percent of the cost of the vehicle.

Before you are able to register the vehicle in the state of Kentucky, you will need to make sure that you have your car insurance and you have had the vehicle inspected by the county sheriff. You can find out more information about this process by visiting the Kentucky DMV website.

Honda Accord - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I specifically asked for Bernie to come back, since I was so pleased with the work he did on our other car. This time I got to meet Bernie personally. He is a kind family-man who exhibited the quiet confidence of someone you would expect with the 50 years of automotive experience that he has. I felt very comfortable giving him the key to my car. Two of my kids (ages two and four) came out to greet him, since they remembered him from his first visit. Bernie is great around kids and was very kind to my two-year old son who was trying to "help" Bernie do his job. Thanks again, Bernie!
Honda Odyssey - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I was very pleased with Bernie's work, professionalism, and courteousness. Best brake job I have ever had, and I have had many done (and several done myself, but not on this vehicle). This was a maintenance appointment -- not a repair of something broken -- so I was surprised when the brakes felt so much better after Bernie did the work. You can really see the care he took with our vehicle when I examined everything after he was finished. Thanks, Bernie!

Breck was awesome! He called ahead of time and asked if he could arrive early. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable with the service he was going to provide and explained things clearly to me. He smiled and made this experience a good one. I will absolutely be booking future appointments with Breck and I will recommend him and Your Mechanic services to others I know. Thank you!

BMW Z4 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenix, Arizona
Brian knows what he is doing and I am so happy yourmechanic.com suggested him for my Z4 car inspection prior to purchasing and even happier he was available to perform my 1st service on the vehicle I purchased. His knowledge on the brand gave him ability to to an in depth inspection and he communicated very well informing me what to prepare for in ownership of my BMW. When he came to perform maintenance on my vehicle he shared so many tips with me. I will absolutely be having Brian come back out when I need future servicing on my car.
