New Residents

We welcome you to the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas.

Moving to the CityWhether you've just moved to Wyandotte County, or you're a long time resident with a new car or truck, you need to register your vehicle with the state for a fee and pay your property taxes at the local County Treasurers Office so that you can drive legally. (Military and full-time college students may register at either their legal residence or where they are stationed.)

To help you through this sometimes complex task, the Motor Vehicle Department has outlined the steps you need to follow.

  • You are allowed 90 days to re-register your vehicle
  • Original out of state title or if the lien holder is holding your title in the other state, have the lien holder fax a copy to one of our offices:

Fax number for 710 North Seventh Street: (913) 573-2890
Fax number for 8200 State Avenue: (913) 573-8554

  • Motor Vehicle Examination (MVE-1) located at the Tourist Center I-70 Westbound just before the 78th St. Exit. The Hwy. Patrol requires the vehicle, title, driver’s license and $15 fee.
  • Kansas liability proof of insurance
  • Lien release if vehicle is paid. (Notary may be required, depending on the state)
  • Changing ownership will require additional information

After you license your car for the first time in Wyandotte County, you are responsible for the annual renewals prior to expiration. If you do not receive the courtesy renewal notice from the state by the 5th of your expiration month, contact the Motor Vehicle Department office for assistance. The renewal month is determined by the first letter of an individual's last name or the first letter of a company's name. For more information on this process, see Renewing your License.
