OMV Makes Changes to Truck Registration Process

Commissioner Nick Gautreaux of the Office of Motor Vehicles has some good news for pickup truck owners. “Starting this year, the renewal notices for all regular truck plates up to 10,000 pounds will be good for four years, not just for one year,” Gautreaux said. “Our legislators helped us out last year by simplifying the truck plate law to let us do this.  It will make it much easier on truck owners who had to mail in their renewal— or come in to OMV every single year—to renew their truck plate.” 

According to the new requirements, the renewal sticker for the license plate on trucks 6,001 to 10,000 pounds will be valid for four years, which is the same as trucks weighing 6,000 pounds or less, and the base rate will be $28.00 per year. The renewal invitation requires customers to make a single flat payment of $112.00 once every four years instead of paying up to $36.00 every year, depending on the weight of their truck. 

The Office of Motor Vehicles also wants to remind everyone that they do not have to mail their renewal payment in to the office. Customers can easily pay with credit or debit cards by going through the online vehicle services on the Office of Motor Vehicle’s web site at  Please note that there is a nominal fee for the online service. 

Anyone who has questions regarding their new license plate registrations should contact their local Office of Motor Vehicles at the phone numbers found on the OMV web site or call the Headquarters Office in Baton Rouge at 225-925-6146.  Gautreaux added, “As always, my staff and I are ready to assist you in any way that we can.”
