Online Tag Renewal Now Available through CARS

Oklahoman’s now have a faster and easier option for renewing their vehicle tag.  The Oklahoma Tax Commission online vehicle renewal system, CARS (Convenient Auto Renewal System), which allows for the online renewal of most vehicle tags is now available at www.CARS.OK.GOV.

Most renewals can be completed online through CARS as the system allows renewals for commercial, non-commercial and farm vehicle registrations.

“CARS is intended to make renewing car tags a convenient, simple and easy process for individuals,” said Paula Ross, Oklahoma Tax Commission spokesperson.  “CARS is open around the clock every day, including weekends, nights and holidays.”

And for individuals who might need a reminder their tag is due, CARS has an option for that.  By enrolling in the “Remind Me” utility available at CARS.OK.GOV, Oklahomans can have an email reminder sent at the beginning of the month the tag is due.

Oklahomans can renew online if they:

  • Wish to renew a tag for a noncommercial (automobiles; noncommercial/non-farm trucks; motorcycles; travel trailers; motor homes) or commercial (15,000 pounds or less laden weight) vehicle, that is not more than ten (10) months delinquent.
  • Wish to renew a tag for a farm truck weighing (truck + load carried or pulled) 55,000 pounds or less, that is not more than ten (10) months delinquent.
  • Have a valid credit/debit card or a checking account to pay for the renewal.
  • Have insurance information ready, or are declaring a non-use vehicle.
  • Have a driver's license number (if individual) or FEI number (if other than an individual).
  • Have a printer connected to a computer in order to print the receipt and/or provide a valid email address to have the receipt sent to that account.

To begin the renewal process, individuals simply enter the last four digits of their vehicle identification number (VIN), tag number, and if renewing for a farm truck, then the user must enter the Agriculture Exemption Permit (SMX) number.

Payment options for the renewal system include EFT payments, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. The payments are processed through a secure payment engine, which abides by rigorous policies and procedures to ensure that Oklahomans can be confident their payments are safe, private, and secure.

CARS is a product of a partnership between the Oklahoma Tax Commission and OK.gov, Oklahoma’s Official Web site.
