How to Register a Car in Oklahoma

registration oklahoma

When moving to a new area, there are a variety of things that you will have to handle to comply with local laws. One of the first things that you need to do when moving to Oklahoma is to get your car registered. In order to get this process done, you will have to go to the Oklahoma Tax Commission. If you fail to get your car registered after 30 days of being a resident of the state, then you will be at risk of being fined. Before you go into the tax commission, you will have to go and get a valid car insurance policy. Once you have this policy in hand, here is what you will need to take with you:

  • A completed Application of Oklahoma Certificate of Title for a Vehicle
  • Proof that you own the car
  • Proof of valid car insurance
  • The lien documents if you are still paying on the car
  • An odometer disclosure form if the vehicle is less than nine years old

For Oklahoma residents that have bought a car from a dealership or a private seller, it will need to also be registered within 30 days of the purchase. Here is what you will need to bring with you when registering the vehicle in question:

  • The title or proof that it has been bought from the dealership
  • The insurance cards for the vehicle
  • The odometer reading for the vehicle
  • A completed Application of Oklahoma Certificate of Title for a Vehicle

There will be fees that have to be paid when registering your car for the first time. Here are the fees that you can expect to pay:

  • The title fee is $11
  • The registration fee is $91 for a motor vehicle and $94 for a motorcycle
  • There will be a title transfer fee if you have just purchased the vehicle of $17
  • The VIN inspection fee for out of state cars is $4
  • If the vehicle is being finances, there is a $10 processing fee

The only thing that you need to have before going to the Oklahoma Trade Commission is the copy of your insurance policy. If you are in need of further assistance, be sure to visit the Oklahoma DMV website.
