How much does vehicle registration (license plates) cost in Missouri?
Passenger registration fees are based on the taxable horsepower (which is different from actual engine horsepower) of your vehicle. Truck license plates are based on the gross weight of the vehicle plus the maximum load to be carried or pulled at any one time and distance. Local license plates are issued to trucks that will not be driven beyond a 50-mile radius of the owner’s registered address. Beyond local license plates are issued in all other cases. Annual passenger and truck registration fees and processing fees are listed below.
