Moving Here

We are glad you chose to move to Hickman County. If you moved within Tennessee, you need to change the county in which your vehicle is registered. If you moved from another state, you have a few more steps.

If you are moving from another county inside Tennessee…

You have a Tennessee plate and title for your vehicle. The fee to renew a regular passenger plate is $74.50. We will validate your registration and issue a Hickman County Sticker to go on the bottom of your plate.

You will need proof of identification and two proofs of residency. Update your Speciality License Plate with the county clerk.

If you are moving from another state and hold the vehicle title…

Bring to County Clerk’s office the Vehicle Title and release of lien if applicable. Also bring proof of identification and two proofs of residency. The fee for a title and purchase of a standard passenger license plate is $85.50. The new plate will be vaild for one year from the month registered. Sales Tax may also be applicable.

If you are military…

Bring your current orders stationing you to a base in Tennessee plus current End of Month (LES) Leave and Earnings Statement within last 90 days. If your home of record on the LES is Tennessee, the title and registration fee is $74.50. If you are not stationed in the State of Tennessee, you must provide proof of sales tax. You may be responsible for additional taxes.

If you are moving from another state and title is held by a lienholder…

Bring to County Clerk’s office the current vehicle registration issued by your previous state and the complete mailing address of the title holding office for your lienholder. Also bring proof of identification and two proofs of residency.

The registration may not be expired more than 12 months from the date of application. (If registration is not valid you must have a copy of the title faxed from your lienholder to our office.)

If you are military…

Bring your current orders stationing you to a base in Tennessee plus current End of Month (LES) Leave and Earnings Statement within last 90 days. If your home of record on the LES is Tennessee, the title and registration fee is $70.50, otherwise it is $40.00. If you are not stationed in the State of Tennessee, you must provide proof of sales tax. You may be responsible for additional taxes.

Note: In Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New York, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Wyoming, the owner, not the lien holder, keeps the title.
