Motorcycle Registration in Oklahoma
If you own a motorcycle in Oklahoma, you will need to register it in order to drive it on or off the road. All vehicles must be registered unless the vehicle is in junk or salvaged status. Even if you own a vehicle that is not is use, it must be registered.
The registration process for motorcycles is basically the same as that for regular four-wheeled vehicles―meaning, it's handled by the Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC), but you can take care of it with your local tag agent. Registration must be handled in person.
Motorcycle registration renewals are normally done through mail. Simply mail the following items to the Oklahoma Tax Commission or to any local tag agent.
- Motorcycle renewal notice postcard.
- Proof of liability insurance.
- Check or money order for the applicable fees made payable to the OTC. Be sure to write your driver's license number on the check.
