    ND Custom Built Car Registration

    Before chasing down a custom-built car registration, be sure your vehicle fits North Dakota's definition of such a vehicle. According to the Department of Transportation, (NDDOT) a custom-built car falls under the following category:

    Street Rod: A modernized vehicle that retains the original body configuration but contains interior upgrades like a new engine, new brakes, or a new suspension.

    How to Register

    • To register your street rod, you need to complete an Application for Certificate of Title and Registration of Vehicle. This all-encompassing form, which is used for every type of vehicle registration, can be easily downloaded or found at any North Dakota Motor Vehicle office, where you can also register the car.
    • Be sure you record the vehicle identification number (VIN) on the application.
    • You will also need to include a registration fee. The state employs a system based on number of registered years and vehicle weight.
