VEHICLE TRANSACTIONS -
Due to the fact that every vehicle transaction is different depending on the state, releasing
signatures, etc. - you need to bring in your documentation and completed forms to be examined by the DMV agent. General rule of thumb
is "You need a title to get a title". Bring in your current title with you, complete the Vehicle Registration form, and provide payment.
These are very general rules. You can get detailed information by visiting the DMV website.
Fees may vary - the
following is a general list for non-commercial vehicles:
$100 Two year registration for all non-commercial passenger vehicles.
a two year registration for motorcycles.
$30 For a two year registration for a non-commercial trailer.
$15 For your new title
charge if you have a lien holder (if you owe money to a bank or other entity for the vehicle).
For example: If you need to register
your boat trailer it would cost you $30 for the registration and $15 for the title for a total of $45.
If your vehicle is 8 years
old or older and you live on POW, you qualify for Z TAB; which is a permanent registration for the vehicle. Pay an extra $25.00 dollars
when you register your vehicle and then you never have to register it again.
PERSONALIZED PLATES -
For drop off service you must have cash or a check. Debit/Credit Cards are accepted only when DMV is open. Checks should be made out to the City of Craig.
Forms and books are available at the DMV, CPD Dispatch, or on line at the State
of Alaska DMV site if you want to complete them ahead of time.
