Registration & Insurance

Each motor vehicle on Kansas roads and highways must display a valid registration plate or 30-day temporary tag. License tags expire on a staggered basis, based on the first letter of the owner's last name. Vehicle registration expires on the last day of the month and there is no grace period for enforcement purposes.

Upon selling or trading a vehicle, the seller retains his/her Kansas registration plate. If purchasing another vehicle to replace the vehicle that was traded or sold, he/she may place the registration plate on the new vehicle and transfer the registration through the county treasurer within 30 days.
