Before getting an Oklahoma license plate, it’s necessary to register your vehicle with the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS). This involves filling out the correct documents, offering evidence of ownership, and covering any required expenses. After completing this process, you’ll be able to receive your license plate, keeping in mind to abide by state rules when displaying it on your car. If you’re buying a used car in Oklahoma, you might have to transfer the license plates from the previous owner or apply for new ones through the Oklahoma DPS.
If you purchase a vehicle in Oklahoma, you are required to secure its title within 30 days and have the vehicle registered at a Service Oklahoma or a Licensed Operator location. Meanwhile, newly arrived residents in Oklahoma are also given a 30-day grace period to accomplish the vehicle’s registration and titling in the state.
Getting an Oklahoma license plate is connected to successful vehicle registration. Whether you are registering a new or used car, you may be required to furnish these documents:
- Proof of Oklahoma insurance
- Oklahoma title
- Vehicle purchase agreement
- Form 701-6 – Application for Oklahoma Certificate of Title
- Manufacturer Statement of Origin (MSO) received from the dealer
- Valid driver license
- Properly Assigned Purchase Agreement (or Form 722-1 if purchased from a private seller)
- Form 729 – Odometer Disclosure Statement
The charges associated with vehicle registration in Oklahoma are dependent on a number of things such as the weight, model year, and vehicle type. Furthermore, extra fees for specific number plates or other amenities may be applicable.
You can finalize the registration process and get your Oklahoma license plate by visiting the local DPS office with the required documents and fees. While your permanent license plate is being processed and delivered, the Oklahoma DMV may give you a temporary registration card and license plate.
It should be emphasized that in Oklahoma, it is mandatory to attach the Oklahoma license plate on the back of the vehicle, ensuring they are firmly attached and easily noticeable from a reasonable distance during both day and night.
