Registering a Vehicle

Until recently, Oklahoma law allowed a license plate to “follow” a vehicle in a transaction. For all sales taking place after June 2019, that is no longer true. The new owner of a motor vehicle must make an application to title and register the vehicle by the transfer to, or purchase of, a license plate for the newly acquired vehicle with the Tax Commission within thirty (30) calendar days from the date of vehicle purchase or acquisition. A registration is good for one year. A registration may be renewed online using the state’s OkCars service.

Where to Register

Registration may be done at an office of the Oklahoma Tax Commission, or at any of the various Tag Agents located throughout the state.
