|Registration Overview||The state of Oklahoma issues both registrations and titles for
boats. These are administered by the Motor Vehicle Division in Oklahoma City. Registration
and titling are required on all outboards in excess of 10
horsepower. Boat trailer
registration and titling are not required in Oklahoma.
|Marking Requirements||Oklahoma boat registration numbers begin with an "OK" designation which is followed
by four numbers and then two letters. These must be displayed on all non-documented
boats along with registration sticker tabs. Coast Guard documented vessels may not
display the state registration numbers. However they must display the state
registration tabs, an owner designated vessel name, and a hailing port. An official
documentation number must also be affixed to a visible interior location in the hull
itself or an integral part of the hull.
|Registration Requirements||Unless otherwise exempted, all boats capable of being used, as a means of transportation on the waters of Oklahoma, are required to be titled. Coast Guard documented boats are also subject to Oklahoma boat registration. A complete list of requirements and exemptions can be found on their website. This state does not have provisions for conditional registrations. However they do have defined procedures for registering a boat pursuant a mechanic's or possessory lien foreclosure.|
|Ownership and Liens||Oklahoma issues titles on all registered boats except for those
which are Coast Guard Documented. There are no provisions for title bonding when there
is insufficient evidence of ownership. In these cases it will be necessary to
petition a local court of law for an ownership award.
Boat title and registration records in Oklahoma are maintained by the
Motor Vehicle Division. This agency does not facilitate online searches for the

by an owner or otherwise qualified party by submitting a boat record request form.
