Other Vehicle Registrations in Oklahoma

SUMMARY: How to Register Your Special Vehicle in Oklahoma

Most Oklahoma vehicles are registered the same way as standard cars and trucks—this includes ATVs, RVs, and motorhomes. Some vehicles require additional applications or different fees, such as with custom-built cars. Others, like snowmobiles, are exempt from registration. Find your vehicle below for specifics.

In Oklahoma, the Tax Commission requires you to title and register non-standard vehicles, such as all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), trailers, and off-road motorcycles. While the process to title and register these vehicles is very similar to registering and titling your standard automobile, different rules and regulations may apply to you.

NOTE: If required, you must title your special vehicle within 30 days of your purchase or risk receiving a fine.

ATVs and Off-Road Motorcycles

All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and off-road motorcycles (ORMs) must be registered and titled in Oklahoma.

Register your ATV or ORM at your local tag office by completing an Application for Oklahoma Certificate of Title for a Vehicle (Form 701-6) and providing the manufacturer's certificate of origin or the original title signed over to you. You'll also need to provide a copy of the invoice or bill of sale you received when you bought the vehicle.

You'll follow the same registration and titling procedures as you would to register your standard car. Visit our Register Car in Oklahoma page for more information.

It will cost you $11 to title your ATV or off-road motorcycle with the Oklahoma Tax Commission.


Snowmobiles are not required to be registered or titled in Oklahoma.

OK Utility Vehicles

Utility vehicles must be registered and titled in Oklahoma, if you purchased it on July 7, 2008 or later. The process is fairly similar to that of registering a regular car; however, you do not need to provide proof of insurance or an odometer disclosure statement.

You will need to pay:

  • The title fee.
  • Excise tax of 3.25% of your purchase price.
  • The registration fee which is based on the exact type of vehicle.

For fee information, contact the Oklahoma Tax Commission directly.

Custom-Built Cars

To register your custom-built car, simply follow the instructions above for registering a regular car, but also provide the following to the Oklahoma tag office:

You may also need to provide:

  • Bills of sale, receipts, or invoices for all major components used in construction.
  • The VIN number on the chassis.
  • Identifying numbers of the engine.

For more information about registering a custom-built car, contact the Oklahoma Motor Vehicle Division.

Trailer Registration in Oklahoma

Only trailers that are used commercially must be registered and titled in Oklahoma. You will need to visit your local OK Tax Commission office with a completed Application for Oklahoma Certificate of Title for a Vehicle (Form 701-6). You will also need to pay the $48 registration fee. You will need to renew your trailer registration annually, which will cost you $6 each time.

Trailers for personal use only, even if pulled on public roadways, do not require registrations, tags, or titles in Oklahoma.

Farm Trailers

Farm trailers are exempt from titling, but may be registered voluntarily if you wish to receive a farm tag.

NOTE: If your trailer does not have a vehicle identification number (VIN), the serial number or your Social Security number (SSN) will be used as its identification.

If you choose not to register your farm trailer, you will need to display your OK driver's license number or license plate number of another one of your vehicles on the back of your trailer. The numbers will need to be at least 2 inches in height.

Motorhome and RV Registration

If you have a motorhome or recreational vehicle (RV) in Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Tax Commission requires you to have it registered before you drive it on any public road. Follow the same instructions as you would to register a regular car.

Scooter and Moped Registration

Depending on the engine size, speed, and power of your moped or scooter, you may need to register it with the OK Tax Commission.

Contact your local tag office for complete details.
