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.

This change will better streamline the needs of these types of business transactions and improve the quality of customer service we can provide before the transaction is even processed.
Effective 08/15/2018: Kansas Department of Revenue has switched to the new Digital License Plate Production Process. (DLPP).
What is it?
It is digitally printed license plate will be printed "on demand". The printing of the license plate eliminates the need to stock plate inventory at the County Treasurer's Office.
When will my plate be shipped?
Your new digitally printed license plate will be shipped to your address within (10-14) business days.
How will I know the status of my plate?
An email and/or text will be sent notifying the customer on the status of their plate.
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).
