How do I register a car in Missouri?

I just moved to Missouri, and I need to use my car. What steps should I take to register my car in Missouri?

Answer
Every state has different processes for registering your car. Luckily, Missouri has a pretty simple system in place! Unfortunately, you’ll need to register in person.
To register your car, you’ll need to provide:
  • The title (and any other ownership documents)
  • A signed Application for Missouri Title and License form
  • Your current insurance card
  • Your Missouri vehicle inspection documents
  • Your VIN and odometer reading
Once you provide the DMV with the required documents, they should approve your registration! Be aware, you may also need to pay a processing fee depending on your county. Ask your local DMV about their requirements before you book any appointments.
Since you just moved to a new state, you’ll probably need a new insurance policy. For help finding the best rate on the coverage you need, try Jerry.
