Deadlines for Newly Purchased Vehicles

Governor Kelly signed Executive Order No. 20-55, which further extends the use of sixty-day permits and provides staggered deadlines for newly purchased vehicles without penalties.

While the Motor Vehicle offices are open to the public, we encourage you to utilize our Title Drop Off Service before coming to an office.  Residents can review and complete an application found at www.jocogov.org/residents/vehicles in order to title a recently purchased vehicle. Individuals should place all required original documentation with the application in an envelope. The envelope can be placed in one of our convenient and secure drop off boxes at our Mission and Olathe offices. Individuals will receive an e-mail within 14 days with instructions on how to pay for the transaction. Payment can be made online or by mail. Receipts and registration information will be printed and mailed as soon as payment is received.

For questions regarding when a newly purchased vehicle must be registered to avoid penalties please see the schedule below.
