How long do I have to obtain Missouri license plates and a Missouri’s driver’s license?

You have 30 days to obtain Missouri license plates and a Missouri’s driver license.

What is needed to obtain Missouri plates?

You will need the title or registration to the vehicle, proof of insurance, a Missouri State Inspection Certificate, and a tax waiver from the Clay County Assessor’s office.

Moving to Clay County From Another County in Missouri: What is required to license my vehicle in Clay County?

You will need the title or registration to the vehicle, proof of insurance, a Missouri State Inspection Certificate, and a copy of the tax receipt showing paid taxes from the county where you were a resident on January 1 of the previous year. If you have two-year tags on your vehicle, the license office will require the previous two years tax receipts.

How do I get on Clay County’s tax rolls?

If you are a new resident of Clay County as of January 1, you need to contact the Clay County Assessor’s office so that an assessment list may be mailed to you prior to March 1.  If you became a Clay County resident after January 1, you will need to notify the county assessor’s office that you moved from with your new address so they know where to send their bill for that year and contact Clay County Assessor’s office to be mailed a list for the following year. Taxpayers already on the tax rolls may fill out their assessment forms online (Jan 2 through Apr 30), whereas all taxpayers can download a current assessment list, print and fill it out at home and send it to our office. Remember, you pay taxes to whichever county you lived in on January 1.
