Definition of a Custom or Antique Vehicle in Wyoming

Prior to initiating a custom or antique vehicle registration in Wyoming, car owners are encouraged to get familiar with the type of vehicle they own and the corresponding requirements that must be satisfied. A custom car registration is required for street rods and custom-built vehicles.

A street rod is a motor vehicle with a model from 1948 or before, or a car that has been altered from its original design in order to resemble a model manufactured before 1949. A custom vehicle is a motor vehicle at least 25 years old, or of a model from and after 1948. Both vehicles must be constructed with non-original materials. A WY antique car registration, on the other hand, is needed for old, antique motor vehicles that are at least 25 years old or more.

Note: Both the antique and custom vehicles are operated in exhibitions, parades, tours, antique car club activities and other related activities, but not for general transportation.

Steps in the Wyoming Custom or Antique Vehicle Registration Process

Drivers who want to apply for custom or antique vehicle registration and license plates need to complete the procedure at a local WY DOT branch. When registering custom car or street rod, as well as applying for pioneer license plates for antique vehicles, applicants need to do the following:

  • Complete an Application for Pioneer, Street Rod & Custom Vehicle Plates form.
  • Provide a copy of the car title.
  • Provide proof of payment of sales tax.
  • Provide proof of car insurance.
  • Submit payment of the applicable fees.

Fees to Register a Custom or Antique Vehicle in Wyoming

The final step in the custom or antique car registration procedure is to provide payment of the applicable fees, which may vary depending on the type of vehicle you own.

When registering a custom car in Wyoming, applicants will be required to pay a fee of $100 for their custom-built vehicle or street rod. However, the fee for pioneer classic license plates is much lower and amounts to $10.

Note: In addition to the custom or antique vehicle registration renewal procedure, drivers will be required to renew car registrations in Wyoming for their standard passenger vehicles.
