Motor Vehicle Registration Timeframe

Annual Registration Required

Annual registration is required for all motor vehicles. Annual registration is for twelve months from date of purchase or acquisition; or the month in which the vehicle was brought into Wyoming on a permanent basis.

Temporary Registration

A nonresident owner of a vehicle, or any owner upon transfer of ownership or lease, may as an alternative to annual registration, obtain not more than 1 temporary registration in a 12 month period. The temporary registration authorizes operation of the vehicle on the highways of this state for a period of 30, 60 or 90 days.

Temporary Worker Registration Permit

A temporary worker displaying a valid registration and license plate from another state and is properly insured who is employed in Wyoming for 120 days or less may choose to purchase a Temporary Worker Registration Permit from the county treasurer in lieu of registering the vehicle. No person shall be issued more than 1 decal in a 12 month period. The fee for a Temporary Worker Registration Permit shall be $50 per each month of required registration and shall not exceed 120 days per vehicle.

  • You must show current vehicle registration and valid proof of insurance.  
  • The current vehicle registration needs to be valid the entire time of the temporary registration.
