County Treasurer - Vehicle Licensing - Commercial Plates

A Commercial Vehicle is any vehicle or vehicle combination used, designed or maintained for transportation of persons for hire, compensation for profit, or used primarily for the transportation of property for gain and profit and one or more of the following:

  • A power unit having 2 axles and a gross vehicle weight over 26,000 pounds;
  • A power unit having 3 or more axles regardless of weight;
  • Is used in combination and the combination exceeds 26,000 pounds gross vehicle weight.

Commercial license plates are issued to vehicles meeting the above criteria.

Any commercial vehicle with a weight of 55,000 pounds or greater, must provide a stamped copy of the IRS Form 2290 at the time of renewal. For new purchases, Form 2290 must be provided within 45 days of licensing or the registration will be revoked and the license plates confiscated.

Commercial vehicles are staggered like all other vehicle registrations. Therefore, the expiration month will be determined by the month of purchase.

Fees for commercial plates are broken into a County Fee and a State Fee. The County Fee is calculated in the same way as a regular registration. The State Fee is calculated depending on the gross vehicle weight of the vehicle or combination using a weight table.

There are several exemptions available for commercial registrations only. The exemptions allow the owner of the vehicle to only pay a percentage of the total state fee. Only one exemption can be applied to a registration:
