Late Fees

Failing to Renew your vehicle will result in a late penalty of twenty-five cents, (.25), per day until it is renewed. Keep in mind that you have a grace period of thirty days to renew your vehicle.

Vehicles Not in Use

Affidavit of Nonuse: Motor vehicles not in use, in lieu of insurance, can be registered if the owner files an AFFIDAVIT OF NONUSE IN LIEU OF LIABILITY INSURANCE with the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma.

The yearly validation decal issued to the owner of a vehicle who has filed a Non-Use Affidavit in lieu of liability insurance verification will be a decal of a separate and distinct color (black) from all other yearly decal types. Normal yearly registration renewal fees are collected.

Personalized License Plates

Application for Personalized Plate: A personalized license plate can be obtained through the link below or by contacting the Vehicle Registration Department. The maximum is seven letters for an automobile tag and six for a motorcycle.

Use of Tribal Assistance for Registration or Renewal

Only tribal members who receive Elders or Veterans Assistance can use said assistance for vehicle registration or tag renewal. Household Assistance does not qualify.

Registration Renewals by Mail

Every month a letter is sent out to tribal members letting them know that their tags are due to expire that month. In that letter it will give you an amount to pay. (Please keep in mind that this is a computer generated letter and does not factor any discounts for Elders, Veterans, Disabled Veterans, or Handicapped persons. For questions, please contact Vehicle Registration during normal business hours. To renew by mail, send the amount due in the form of a money order or personal check with a copy of your current vehicle insurance verification. Once received we will send your decals for the current year, your updated vehicle registration and an Application for Iowa Tribe Vehicle Registration. You will need to sign/date the application page, have it notarized and returned to us within 10 days. If you have any questions, please contact the Vehicle Registration office for assistance.

The Iowa Tribe is moving forward in the vehicle registration field. Currently all of our tag information is shared with OLETS, (Oklahoma Law Enforcement Telecommunications System). What this means to you as a tribal member is that your vehicle license plates will be recognized anywhere in the country by the law enforcement community.
