There's a new bill (HB-2011) that has been introduced that would change Oklahoma's vehicle registration requirements. If passed we could go from registering our vehicles annually to every 2 years instead.

House Bill 2011 was recently introduced and is making its way through the legislative process and will be heard by the full House and various subcommittees soon. It's got a decent chance of being passed.
The changes would apply to all vehicles with the exception being manufactured homes and vehicles which have permanent tags. Some commercial vehicles will also be excluded from biennial registration.
Watch the video below from News 9 for details on Oklahoma House Bill 2011
The bill was authored by Oklahoma Representative Dean Davis (R) District 98. The bill just recently passed the state House Committee unanimously, see the report here. It should be in front of the full House soon.
WILL CHANGING VEHICLE REGISTRATION TO EVERY 2 YEARS DOUBLE THE PRICE?
So why the changes? Here’s a quote from Rep. Dean Davis: "This is a commonsense approach that will save the average Oklahoman time and create greater convenience when having to renew their personal vehicle registration." Makes sense to me, I'd much rather deal with the hassle of tags every 2 years vs annually.
Rep. Dean Davis went on to say: "We've taken steps in recent years to ease this process, and this is just a continuation of those efforts." The BIG QUESTION is, will it cost double? In other words, if we register our vehicles biennially will we pay the same amount as annual registration? Or will there be a discount? Otherwise, we'll end up paying for 2 years of registration all at once. Guess we'll wait and see what happens.
