Buying and Selling FAQs in Oklahoma
Just like buying and selling homes, buying and selling vehicles are exciting, yet important, processes. Let DMV.org help clear up and confusion you may have.
I just bought a vehicle in Texas. How do I get an Oklahoma tag?
Just visit your local tag office with the manufacturer's certificate of origin or the current title signed over to you, the Bill of Sale, and proof of insurance. The title and registration process is the same as if you bought the vehicle in OK.
My husband is stationed overseas, and has found a car he'd like to buy to bring home. Can you give me some information on imports?
I just bought a new car and would like a special tag. How much do they cost?
Congratulations! The state has a detailed list of special tags and their prices, so check it out. You'll also want to cruise through DMV.org's License Plate section for all details on specialty and personalized tags.
Can I get a temporary tag for my car?
Oklahoma does not offer temporary tags. If you buy a vehicle from a dealership, they will affix a paper tag that is valid for 30 days, until you can get the vehicle registered and tagged in your name.
What kinds of taxes will I have to pay when I register my car?
Oklahoma collects registration fees for the tag and excise tax when registering your vehicle. Find out more information on DMV.org's registration page.
I'm getting ready to sell my car. Do I keep the tag?
No. Oklahoma requires that the tag remain with the vehicle, not the owner.
I'm ready to buy a new car, but I don't know where to start looking. Can you help?
Sure. First, check out our Buying and Selling Guide to help you get started. You'll also want to research prices and models; one of the easiest ways to do this is online. Check out websites like AutoTrader, Cars, and Kelley Blue Book to compare vehicles to fit your budget.
