I am a new Iowa resident. How do I register and title my vehicle? (Back to top)
Click here to find out how to register and title your vehicle in the state of Iowa.
I have lost my title. How do I get a replacement title? (Back to top)
The owner of the vehicle will complete Iowa DOT form #411033 (Application for Replacement of Iowa Certificate of Title to a Motor Vehicle). If the lost title reflects more than one person on the face of the title for ownership, ALL OWNERS OF THE VEHICLE must sign the application form. See Iowa Adm. Rule 761-400.12(321) (2).
If the title has an open lien (the vehicle is held by a financial institution or the lien was never released on the State Motor Vehicle system), the Replacement Title Application must be applied for by the lien holder unless the lien holder sends a separate lien release by filling Iowa DOT form #411068 (Cancellation of Security Interest). Please note this form must be notarized.
Both of these forms are available online from the Iowa Department of Transportation Forms Website
Once our office receives the application there is a state required mandatory 5-day waiting period before the replacement title is issued. The replacement title fee is $25.00.
I have lost my validation sticker. Where do I go to obtain a new one? (Back to top)
You can come to your County Treasurer’s Office to receive a new validation sticker. If you have your current registration, you must bring it with you.
I have lost one of my license plates. Where do I go to get a replacement plate? (Back to top)

You are required to transfer the title on your new vehicle in your county of residence.
If I put my vehicle in storage, do I have to buy the plates every year? (Back to top)
No, you can put the plates "in storage" at your County Treasurer’s Office. This will eliminate paying a penalty when you decide to take the vehicle out of storage. However, in order to store the plates, they do need to be currently registered. The plates and the current registration need to be surrendered at the County Treasurer’s Office so that the State Motor Vehicle System can be updated and the registration stamped "STORED".
If the current registration year has expired, you will pay one full years fee in order to get your plates out of storage.
What are the guidelines for allowable trade in credits for use tax? (Back to top)
The guidelines are outlined here.
What do I do when I take my vehicle out of storage? (Back to top)
If the vehicle is removed from storage within 30 days of being placed in storage, you receive the same plates. If the vehicle is removed from storage after 30 days, you will receive a new set of plates.
If the current year has expired, you will pay a full-year’s fee in order to get your plates out of storage.
What does the name connector "and", or "or" mean on the face of my vehicle title as it relates to selling my vehicle? (Back to top)
The name connector "and" means that both owners that are listed on the vehicle title will have to sign as sellers when the vehicle is sold.
The name connector "or" means that only one of the owners that are listed on the face of the vehicle title will have to sign as seller when the vehicle is sold. See Admin Code 761--400.14(321).
When applying for a replacement (duplicate) title or junking certificate, ALL OWNERS OF THE VEHICLE must sign the application form regardless of name connector.
When can I renew my plates? (Back to top)
You have one month prior to your renewal month, your renewal month, or the month following to renew without penalty. When the last day of the month that a vehicle registration is due falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a holiday, the payment deadline is extended to include the first business day of the following month.

The woman looked up apologetically and nodded. She first lifted her skirt around her waist, fully exposing her thighs, which were covered in black stockings with wide lace elastic bands, then slowly unbuttoned. The fly of her trousers, lowered them hit me again and turned me to face the wall, grabbed my hips with my hands.
