    MS Motorcycle Registration
    Page Overview

    Registration for motorcycles is handled in Mississippi the same as it is for passenger vehicles. You have 7 days from purchase to register your motorcycle with the State, or 30 days from establishing residence if you have recently moved to Mississippi.

    To register your motorcycle, go to your county tax collector's office with the following information:

    • Certificate of title, signed over to you by previous owner, or the manufacturer's certificate of origin if the motorcycle is new.
    • Bill of Sale.
    • Odometer reading notated on the back of the title.
    • Appropriate fees. The state registration fees are $14. You'll also need to pay a privilege tax, ad valorem tax, and sales tax; the amount depends on the value of your bike and the county in which you live.

    Inspection

    All motor vehicles, including motorcycles, must be inspected by the State of Mississippi. Once your bike passes, you are required to carry the certificate of inspection in your wallet or under the seat of your motorcycle. You can get your inspection done at local tire stores, auto shops, and car dealers. For more information, call (601) 987-1251.

    Tags

    Motorcycle owners have several options for tagging their bike. Fees vary for the different tags, so do your homework or check with your local tax collector's office for details.
