  1. This summary is based on the fee schedules in effect January 1, 2001 and covers vehicles in private operation. Property taxes and taxes levied only at the time of first registration have been excluded.

  2. This summary includes provisions of laws enacted through December 2000, or the most current information available.

  3. To illustrate the practical fee range on a basis that is comparable for all States, the fee for a very light 1989 2-door sedan is given as the minimum and the fee for a heavy 1999 4-door sedan is given as the maximum. There is no intention to show the absolute minimum and maximum fees for each State. In many States, special plates at extra cost are available to those desiring personalized plates for amateur radio operators, for disabled veterans, for members of veterans organizations, etc.

  4. A 1992 4-door sedan of 3,111 pounds empty weight was selected as the " typical " passenger car.

  5. The fee schedules of some States apply to combinations as well as to single-unit trucks. The maximum fee given in this table for those States is therefore much greater than in others. In general, 2-axle single-unit trucks are seldom licensed for more than 26,000 pounds gross weight (or its equivalent under a State's registration system).

  6. The reduced rates also apply to natural resources vehicles.

  7. A 2001 stake body truck of 6,317 pounds empty weight and 19,000 pounds gross weight was taken as the " typical " single-unit truck.

  10. Registration fees for the City and County of Honolulu.

  11. Registration fees for the counties of Hawaii, Maui, and Kauai, respectively.

  13. Trucks and combinations over 26,000 pounds, except farm vehicles, are required to pay a mileage tax. Trailer fees apply only if not registered as part of a combination.

  14. Motor vehicles used exclusively on the farm or on highways connecting farms are exempt from registration. A biennial certificate of exemption is required of such vehicles for a fee between $24.00 and $100.00.

  15. The fees for panel or pickup trucks: $ 25.00 for 4,000 pounds or less gross weight to $ 30.00 for 4,001 to 6,500 pounds gross weight plus $ 1.50 State Police Inspection fee.

  16. Commercial vehicles are registered at $ 180.00 for 26,000 pounds or less to $825.00 for 80,000 pounds gross vehicle weight. For vehicles with gross vehicle weights over 80,000 pounds, the fee is $825.00 plus $25.00 for each additional 2,000 pounds, or fraction thereof.

  17. In some States full trailers are taxed on the same basis as semitrailers, but in many, separate schedules are used. The separate schedules for full trailers are not included in this table.

  18. A 2001 diesel-powered truck tractor of 9,926 pounds empty weight and a semitrailer of 7,000 pounds empty weight, registered for 48,000 pounds gross combination weight, in private operation, were selected as the "typical" vehicles.

  19. A 2001 diesel-powered truck tractor of 14,440 pounds empty weight and a semitrailer of 12,300 pounds empty weight, registered for 80,000 pounds gross combination weight, in private operation, were selected as the "typical" vehicles.

  21. Where the truck tractor and semitrailer are registered as a unit, the fee for the combination is given in the " tractor-truck " column.

  22. In addition to registration fees, there is levied a mileage tax based on operation and weight of vehicle for trucks over 60,000 pounds
