Vehicle Licensing Fees

Fees Effective July 1, 2017

Wyoming Statutes dictate the calculation of all registration fees. The licensing fees are the same for each county regardless of the county a vehicle is registered in.  However, the county that collects the fees keeps and distributes the money to the taxing entities in their county. Therefore, residents are encouraged to register vehicles in the county where they reside.

Vehicle registration fees consist of 2 parts; a county fee and a state fee.

County Fee

The County Fee tax is based on the factory price of the vehicle as listed on the Wyoming Title and is calculated using the following formula:

Factory Cost
X Year of Service Rate
X 0.03
County Fee

Factory Cost

Factory cost is not the blue book value, retail value, or the purchase price. The factory cost is the original cost placed on vehicle by the automobile factory. This can generally be found on your Wyoming Title; if you are calculating a renewal then the factory cost can be found on your previous year's Wyoming registration listed under the box:  Fact Price.

Year of Service Rate

The year of service rate, also known as the valuation percentage, is determined by how many years the vehicle has been registered for use.

Service Rates are:
1st year
2nd year
3rd year
4th year
5th year
6th year and after

Example Calculation

A new vehicle having a factory cost of $20,000 could have a county fee of $360:

$ 20,000
X 60%
X 0.03

State Fee

The State Fee is a fee levied by the State of Wyoming and is remitted to the Wyoming Department of Transportation each month. The fee depends on the vehicle type, as listed in table below.  Download complete Vehicle Registration Fee table here (PDF).
