New to Idaho? Register your vehicle
To register a vehicle in Idaho:
- The vehicle must belong to an Idaho resident or business.
- The vehicle must be titled in Idaho before it can be registered. You can apply for vehicle registration immediately after submitting the required documents to a county assessor's motor vehicle office.
- If you are a new resident, you must register and title your vehicle(s) within 90 days. An Idaho resident is anyone whose principal home has been in Idaho for 90 continuous days, although residency may be declared at any time earlier, and vehicles may be titled and registered at that time. Idaho residents who are temporarily in another state (i.e., students or military personnel) may request titles and registrations for their vehicle(s) through the mail.
