How do you register a car in Idaho?

I just moved to Idaho, and I’ve been a little overwhelmed with everything, but I know I need to register my car here soon. How do I register my car in Idaho?

Congrats on the move! In Idaho, you have 90 days to transfer your title and register your car, so it’s good that you’re on top of things. To register your car in Idaho, you need to start by updating your insurance and getting an Idaho title for your car. Here’s what you need to do:
  • Update your car insurance. Your coverage will need to meet Idaho’s minimum requirements, so make sure everything is in order there first. (If you want to make this step easier, use the Jerry app—we’ll get you quotes from over 50 top insurers in seconds so you can simply choose the plan that works best for you!)
  • Fill out Form ITD 3337. This form will allow you to transfer your out-of-state title to Idaho.
  • Head to the DMV. You should bring your driver’s license, your Social Security number, your current out-of-state registration, your current title and completed title application, your proof of residency, and a way to pay the title and registration fees.
  • Transfer your title. As long as you have everything on the list above, you should be all set for your new title, as long as you’re able to pay the $14 transfer fee. The good news is that you can transfer your title and register at the same time, so once you get an Idaho title, you can get your car registered!
  • Get your car inspected. Once you’ve gotten your title transferred, you’ll need to get your vehicle inspected, which will cost $5. (You can do this earlier, if you like, but it’s often easier to do everything in one visit.)
  • Pay your registration fees. These fees will depend on how old your car is, but you can expect to pay between $45-69 to register. Once you’ve paid, you should be all set!
Congrats again on the move, and enjoy your new location!
