Vehicle Licensing, a division of the Assessor's Office, interfaces with the Idaho Transportation Department,
the Idaho State Tax Commission and the Department of
Parks and Recreation to provide the public with all aspects of vehicle licensing
All vehicles that are operated or pulled on public highways must be titled, including
cars, trucks, motorcycles, motor homes, boats 2000 and newer, travel trailers, off road motorcycles,
snowmobiles, and all terrain vehicles. Utility and boat trailers, boats, and slide-in
truck campers are also registered at Vehicle Licensing.
New residents to our state should apply for Idaho title within 90 days of establishing
residency. The documents needed are:
- Current title to the vehicle
- Vehicle identification number inspection done by the vehicle licensing office or any law officer or other state DMV
- Odometer reading required unless the vehicle is 10 years old or older
- When their title is being held by a lienholder, we have a form letter to send to the financial institution requesting that they send the title to this office for processing.
When Idaho residents purchase a vehicle from a private party, they need to bring the
title to the vehicle along with a bill of sale. If the title is other than an Idaho
title, they need to bring the vehicle in for a serial number inspection.
Titles must be applied for within 30 days of purchase to avoid a $20.00 penalty.
Handicapped placard and special license plate applications are available in this office.
