Motorcycle Registration in North Dakota
Compare Motorcycle Insurance Rates in 3 EASY STEPS
Enter Your Zip Code:North Dakota requires every resident to annually register his or her motorcycle with the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT).
After purchasing a motorcycle, you need to complete an Application for Certificate of Title and Registration of Vehicle. This can be downloaded in a matter of seconds or, if you prefer, you can obtain one from any Motor Vehicle office.
After completing the form, you will also need to include a check or money order for the registration fees.
If you have any questions call NDDOT's Motor Vehicle Division at (701) 328-2725. Unlike most other states, when you call you'll receive a live voice that won't put you on hold while waiting for the next available operator.
After submitting your application, expect about three weeks for the state to mail your registration certificate and decal.
NDDOT will mail you a renewal notice about a month before your registration's expiration. You can either mail this back or you can renew online. This new feature is free of charge. The lone caveat is that you must pay by credit card (Visa, Discover, MasterCard) or debit card.
If you opt to renew by mail, expect the processing to take three weeks. If you renew online, you'll receive your updated registration in five to seven days.
