Motor Vehicle Auto Licensing

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.

Wyandotte County Motor Vehicle Operational Changes

In-Person Appointments for All Services Resume July 5

Currently, the Unified Government only offers new vehicle registration in-person appointments. Starting July 5, 2022, residents of Wyandotte County will be able to make in-person appointments or walk-in to Motor Vehicles for all services. This will follow the implementation of several process improvements to make it easier to make an appointment, find information online, and to have your general questions answered when you visit our front counter.

To register a newly acquired vehicle in-person, please schedule an appointment. To register a newly acquired vehicle without coming into the office, please request to title a recently purchased vehicle online.

Save time, renew online! Download the myWyco App from the Apple App Store or Google Android Play Store.

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.

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).
