Title & Registration

IMPORTANT: This section describes how to title and register an assembled vehicle for the first time. If you want to transfer the title (already issued for an assembled vehicle), refer to the How To Guides for Titling and Registering Vehicles. 
IMPORTANT: Before applying, please determine if you legally qualify for Oregon vehicle registration

To Apply
To title and register an assembled vehicle for the first time, you must:

To Submit Your Application
Take the vehicle, your completed application, supporting materials and payment to a DMV office
Note: Make checks or money orders payable to “Oregon DMV."   
Note: Due to the additional costs of associated merchant fees, DMV offices only accept cash and checks and do not accept credit or debit cards; however many office locations have ATMs available.

How Long Will It Take
If everything is in order, plates and stickers will be issued immediately at the DMV office.

Titles are generally mailed to applicants about three to five weeks after DMV receives the necessary paperwork. Delays may occur during peak processing months.
