Permits and Tags

60-day Permits

Sixty-day permits can ONLY be issued on newly purchased vehicles. The new owner's name and Kansas driver's license number MUST be assigned on the back of the title. These permits are valid only for the first 60 days of ownership. Only one 60-day permit can be issued to any person per vehicle sale. The date of sale is the legal date of purchase, which is used to determine the expiration date of the permit. Proof of insurance coverage must be provided for the vehicle. The cost of the permit is $8.00 or $10.00 at a substation.

At least one registered owner's Kansas driver's license number is required on every personal vehicle title application or renewal. Owners of vehicles registered in a business name will be asked to furnish their FEIN number, which will be entered instead of a driver’s license number. Leased vehicle users will be asked for the lessee’s Kansas driver’ license number. This information will not print on your receipt and will be on file only with the Kansas Department of Revenue. We do not retain this information at the county level.

Thirty-day permits can also be obtained with an electronic sales agreement form, electronic POA form & owner's registration.

1-day Permits

One-day permits are valid ONLY to take a vehicle from where it is currently parked, to the vehicle inspection station and back again. These same day permits are NOT valid to move the vehicle for any other reason. Vehicle inspections for salvage or non-highway are only available at the downtown tag office, 200 W. Murdock. The inspection cost is $20 for an out-of-state or Kansas non-highway title, cash preferred and $25 for a salvage title. The permit can be purchased at any tag office location for $1.00. Title and proof of insurance must be provided for the vehicle.


Extensions on temporary permits and tags are not permitted.

If you are interested in ordering a personalized plate for a vehicle that currently has a standard Ad Astra plate, you must come into one of the county tag offices to order. Bring your current registration receipt for the vehicle and the completed personal tag application. Bring several spelling choices and be prepared to pay the $45.50 reservation fee.

Our office will mail a notification postcard to the address on your application form when we receive the plate from the manufacturer. Your notification postcard will detail what you will need to bring in to receive your new plate.
