The Missoula County Clerk and Treasurer acts as an agent for the Montana Department of Justice to process vehicle registrations and registration renewals. We are tasked with processing these transactions and insuring the genuineness and regularity of each transaction. To that end, we implement a complex series of state and federal laws relating to the registration of motor vehicles. The most comprehensive source of information relating to the requirements to register a vehicle can be found in the Montana Department of Justice's Title Manual. Many situations arise that are not specifically referenced or discussed in the Title Manual and our office has compiled many of these situations in our Frequently Asked Questions page. While the FAQ is helpful, it is far from complete. If you have a specific question that is not answered by the Title Manual or our FAQ, please contact our office for further guidance.
