All vehicles coming from out of state must have a VIN inspection which costs $20. If you do not have the title because the lienholder of that state keeps it until the vehicle is paid for, have the lienholder fax a copy of the front and back of the title to the Trego County Treasurer's office at 785-743-2786. You will then need to come to the Trego County Treasurer's office with your out-of-state registration and your Kansas insurance card(s). We will then do a one-time courtesy registration. We will write to your lienholder and request the out-of-state title be sent to our office.
