Motor Vehicle Auto Licensing

Auto Licensing is a division of the Treasurer’s Office. Whether you own a car, a motorcycle, a motorized bicycle, or a truck, you need to get a renewal for your license plate each year through the Wyandotte County Treasurer's Office. To get the renewal, you need to pay a state motor vehicle registration renewal fee and the local property taxes on your vehicle. Military and full-time college students may register at either their legal residence or where they are stationed. Vehicles registered in another state must re-register the vehicle.

For more information contact our Office: (913) 573-2823 or Call Center.

Effective 10/13/2014:

Written Power of Attorney will be required when conducting motor vehicle business on someone else’s behalf or on behalf of a business. The Power Attorney can be original, copied, or faxed directly to (913) 573-2890 (DTN office) or (913) 573-8554 (Annex facility). If using a Power of Attorney for multiple vehicles, you must submit a Power of Attorney specific for each vehicle. We will no longer accept a copy of someone’s ID as Power of Attorney for another person. This is a State of Kansas mandate, not a county requirement. This does NOT apply to registration renewals. Please click the link below that says “forms” to obtain a Power of Attorney Form (TR-41).

Important Notes:
A $5.00 fee will be charged for both locations for any walk in renewals (in office). To increase efficiencies, each office will service all customers (with the exception of Commercial Motor Vehicle customers Downtown) through one line. We strongly encourage all customers to get their place in line online prior to coming to the office. Commercial Motor Vehicle customers are serviced at our Downtown location and our Annex Location.

If you pay with a credit card, the State of Kansas will charge a fee of 2.5% of the total amount of the transaction as a processing fee. This includes transactions processed online and in person. If you are renewing online, you can pay with an E-check for $1.25 fee. There is not an additional fee for paying with a check for a transaction in the office or paying with cash. We do not accept payments over the phone.

Valid Government Issued Photo ID and current proof of insurance are required on all transactions.
