OMV makes changes to truck registration process to benefit the public

If you own a truck the OMV has some good news for you. The renewal notices for all regular truck plates up to 10,000 pounds will be good for four years instead of just one starting this year.

The new requirements state that 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.

A single flat rate of $112 once every four years is required to all customers instead of paying up to $36 every year, depending on the weight of the truck.

If you have any questions regarding new license plate registration you can contact your local OMV or call the Headquarters Office in Baton Rouge at 225-925-6146.
