How much does it cost to register a passenger vehicle in your province or state?

Here in Alberta, Canada a non-commercial passenger vehicle costs $69. a year to register. That fee covers the auto license only- no insurance. For that meagre fee, one can register the tiniest Smart Car to the most obscene Hummer. I want to compare that rate to the cost of registering a vehicle around North America, especially sliding rates, those that depend on the size of the vehicle.


Some states have a flat fee for registration, others have a complicated and convoluted formula for figuring it out. In my state, Oklahoma for an example:Flat fee, value and age: $15.00 plus 1.25%of the factory delivered price. Fee for2nd through 12th year is $15.00 plus90 percent of the previous year's percentagefee. The fee will be the same for the 12thyear through the 20th year. A $1.75 admin.fee and a $3.00 general revenue fund feeare included in columns (2) through (4). The$15.00 registration fee is eliminated forvehicles 21 years or older.If you'd like to see it for other states, I've included a table here:Source(s):…

I have a chevy caprice wagon, a mazda miata, and a jeep liberty...they all cost around 120-160 USD per year to register here in Michigan...this is one of the cheapest states in the union

What is the time limit for changing adressess on auto insurance? My policy will jump from 424 to 1138!?
If you are in the military your home state does not change. I don't think you have to register a temporary change. Your driver's license should also remain in your home state.

How do I become an admitted insurance broker?
You need to get a company to appoint you - and that's mostly through networking.Usually in your shoes, YOU don't get to choose from companies, you're more likely to have to take whoever will take you on. Progressive is a pretty easy one to get into, or any captive agent like State Farm, or...
