From research I have seen a number of different estimates on registering vehicles in NC. I have heard anywhere from about $100 to $600. Is this information accurate?

I know you have to get your vehicle inspected and pay fees for license plate and other registration fees.

I have a '99 Grand Am and a 2005 Malibu.

I too would like to know this.

Here in Wisconsin we have no vehicle emission tests etc.

All you have to do is register your vehicle buy plates and renew your tags every 12 months. It's about $80 a year.

So lets say I have a 91 Nissan Maxima and I move to Boone, NC how much would it cost me to register get plates etc?

I'm still confused. lol I went on that NC DOT site and it helped a little but not much.

I like how North Carolina offers so many different plates. Here in Wisconsin we have very few choices.m

You will pay a highway use tax (HUT) based on the value of the vehicle, plus a title transfer fee ($40) and the cost of the tag ($28).

You will have 10 days to get your vehicle inspected ($30)

How often do you need a vehicle inspection? Based on the value how much do they go by?

Vehicle inspection in NC is yearly. Some counties require emission inspection in addition safety related inspection, while others are safety only.

The annual property tax on motor vehicle is based on the value of the vehicle and the local tax rate for your specific county/city. It varies throughout the state.

The Highway Use Tax (HUT) is a one-time vehicle registration state tax, not to be confused with the annual local property tax on motor vehicles.

That sounds cheap. My Nissan is blue booked at $1700.00 So if I did this right it should be under $100 bucks?
