I just got the renewal card for my 'o8 Subaru Outback: $307.40, plus a dollar for mail-in renewal.
However, if your vehicle is 11 years old or older, the registration can be PERMANENT! AND, all trailers, motorcycles, and boats are permanent!
I never have to renew the registration for my truck, my motorhome, my boat, or the flatbed and horse trailers!
When I sell any of them, the new owner will have to register them. Once.
License plates belong to the registered owner, they do not stay with the vehicle when sold. In fact, from personal experience, do NOT leave the plates on the vehicle when you sell it!

We just moved to MT and my wife registered her 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. We chose the PERM plate option so the fee was like $350-ish.

My truck is a 1998 Dodge Ram, so I reckon it will be a little bit higher, but I'm sure choosing the PERM tag option as well.

The fee for my Subaru is for one year. In theory, it will decrease as the vehicle ages.
The PERM tags are one time only, as long as you own the vehicle. "PERManent"!
Certain portions of the fees (taxes) are tax deductible on both State and Federal income tax returns.

Geeeesh, sounds a little complicated; I prefer simplicity,
  • Since I drive an '03 Dodge Neon, and a '03 Windstar it might be substantially less for those older rigs then?
  • Do you all have to smog certify the outfit every time or on occasion in Montana, or any of it's higher pop. area's?
Good weekend all,
Later,
Mike.

No inspections, period.
No smog certifications, no safety inspections, nothing.
If you get stopped for a trafic violation, the officer will ask for driver's license, proof of insurance, and registration.
That is as close to an inspection as you will ever get.
YOU are expected to inspect your lights and such now and then to be sure they all work.
