Motor Vehicle Registration
2017 VEHICLE LICENSE PLATE REISSUE
In 2017, the State of Oklahoma will undertake a complete reissuance of vehicle license plates. Beginning January 1, 2017, most Oklahoma vehicles will be issued a new redesigned license plate at time of registration.
Pursuant to the provisions of House Bill 3208, which authorizes the plate reissuance, a $5 fee will be assessed on vehicle registrations through June 30, 2017 to help pay for the new plate, with a portion of the proceeds going to the State Public Safety Fund . The increased fee will apply to all registration transactions completed within that timeframe, regardless of the registration expiration date.
License Plate Number Retention
From August 26, 2016 through August 31, 2017, a vehicle owner may request their existing license plate number to be reproduced on a new-design plate, for an additional fee of $18.00 ($15 + $3 mail fee). Upon receipt of the fee and a completed License Plate Number Retention Request (Form 710Z), the Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC) will order the plate. When available after January 1, 2017, the plate will be mailed directly to the taxpayer address noted on the Retention Request form. The Retention Request form is available for download in the Motor Vehicle Forms and Publications section of this site.
