The Osage County Treasurer's Office is an agent for the State of Kansas for registering and titling motor vehicles. 

Our office is currently unable to provide Driver's License-related services until further notice. You may visit any Kansas County location for support, however, most still require appointments for services.

Our office does not provide commercial vehicle-related services - Find locations in the state of Kansas that offer these services

Appointments are required if completing the following transactions:

  • Titling and registering more than two vehicles (this includes new purchases or title transactions such as adding transfers on death (TOD) or branding antique)
  • More than four (4) renewals
  • If an appointment works best for you, feel free to contact us and we will schedule a convenient time for you

Renew your tags and driver's licenses online at the KS Revenue website.

We issue license plates upon receipt of proper documentation and submission of the correct fees. The fees include registration fees, personal property taxes, title fees, and sales tax, if applicable. Each year the State sends out courtesy reminders six weeks prior to the expiration date of the license plate. It is a state law that every vehicle has proper insurance coverage before the vehicle can be registered. We handle the initial titling of vehicles in Osage County, as well as the annual renewals. Once a vehicle is purchased, the new owner has 30 days in which to bring their documentation into our office to be processed. If the purchase is an out-of-state title, the owner of the vehicle needs to have a vehicle identification inspection completed. The Osage County Sheriff will inspect clean out-of-state VIN/titles and antiques, open every day. To schedule a VIN inspection call 785-828-3121. Salvage title, quiet title, mechanics lien, possessory lien, etc. must be inspected by the Kansas Highway Patrol only at the Osage County Jail Facility on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 9 am to noon. The license plates in Kansas expire based on the first letter in the last name of the first person on the title. Contact the County Treasurer's Office at 785-828-4900 with questions concerning registering vehicles.
