In Mississippi, vehicle services such as titling and registration are managed by the state's Department of Revenue through county Tax Collector's Offices. Driver services are a part of the state's Department of Public Safety and can be found at locations throughout the state. Their services include issuing and renewing driver's licenses for non-commercial and commercial vehicles, learner's permits, identification cards, driver records, and testing. The hours of operation and specific services vary by location, so check your local district office for more details before you visit.
To register most vehicles in Mississippi, you will need to visit the Tax Collector's Office in the county where you keep the vehicle. However, if you operate a vehicle weighing more than 10,000 pounds and frequently drive it across state lines, you must register your vehicle at the Department of Revenue Office in Clinton. The cost of vehicle tags varies, and it is based on the type of vehicle you drive, its value, and the county in which you live. You can also order license plates, including specialty and personalized plates, through the Tax Collector's Office.
To get a standard driver's license, you must be at least 17 years old, complete the application, and bring your Social Security card and an original or certified copy of your birth certificate. You'll also need to pass the written and driving tests unless you have held an out-of-state license for at least six months. Teens who are at least 14 can apply for a learner's permit, which is very restricted. You can apply for a new permit with fewer restrictions at age 15. Application forms for teens must include the notarized signatures of their parents. All applicants under 18 must show evidence of school enrollment or bring their GED.
