Wyoming Statutes dictate the calculation of all registration fees. Therefore, the fees are the same no matter what county a vehicle is registered in. However, the county that collects the fees keeps and distributes the money to the taxing entities in their county. Therefore, residents are encouraged to register vehicles in the county where they reside. 

Vehicle registration fees consist of 2 parts; a county fee and a state fee.

County Fee 
The County Fee is a tax based on the factory price or Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the vehicle as listed on the Wyoming Title and is calculated using the following formula:
Factory Cost
X Year of Service Rate
X 0.03
= County Fee

Factory Price 
"Factory price" means the manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP) of the make, model and trim level of a vehicle, when new, but excludes federal excise taxes, the cost of transportation from the place of manufacture to the place of sale to the first user. The factory price shall be determined from any current, nationally recognized price guide.

Year of Service Rates 
The year of service rate, also know as the valuation percentage, is determined by how many years the vehicle has been registered for use.

Service Rates are:
Service Rate
1st year 60%
2nd year 50%
3rd year 40%
4th year 30%
5th year 20%
6th year
and after 15%

Example Calculation 
Therefore, a new vehicle having a factory cost (MSRP) of $20,000 could have a county fee of $360:
$ 20,000
X 60%
X 0.03
= $360

State Fee 
The State Fee is a fee levied by the State of Wyoming and is remitted to the Wyoming Department of Transportation each month. The fee depends on the vehicle type, as follows:
Vehicle Type Fee
Passenger $15
Trucks & Trailers $2 - $60
(determined by weight)
Motorcycles $12
Commercial $195 - $1,300
(determined by weight)
