Auto Licensing  

Facebook Logo  

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.

The Wyandotte County Treasury/Motor Vehicle Department is serious about service! Please click here to complete a brief (less than 5 minutes) survey about the service you have received. We value your opinion and appreciate your feedback!

Select the link below that best corresponds with your question or concern. If you do not find the answer you are looking for, please contact the Unified Government Treasury Office at (913) 573-2823 or our Call Center by dialing 3-1-1 for fast and quick service.

Effective October 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 only serviced at our Downtown 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.

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