The Arkansas Department of Motor Vehicles is responsible for issuing vanity plates to drivers in Arkansas. The latter are owners of passenger vans/cars/trucks, all-terrain vehicles, mobile homes, and motorcycles.
Before you obtain yours, remember that you must have the license plate on the rear. It is obligatory, as it indicates the expiration date of the registry. AR issues both standard and specialty plates. Yet, the latter is only for special cases (e.g. to organizations).
Regardless of the tag’s type, you have to get it within the first month after you buy a car. You have 3 different ways in which you can apply: via mail, online or in-person.
So, if you have decided to do a lookup through the department you can:

To register your car in this state you need to follow the below-mentioned instructions. You can do it either in person or online. Let’s start with the first option:
It does not matter whether the auto has been inherited, gifted, or transferred between you and others. You have to register and title it with the AR OMV during the following 30 days of purchasing it. It works the same way if you have the label signed over to you.
If you are doing an online record, know that you won’t get the title until you provide all the required paperwork.
Those drivers, who apply for a Title Purpose Only Certificate, will not be able to record it online. You don’t need to provide insurance proof. There is no license tag and you only receive a label.
In case your tag has been issued previously and you do not need to change any information (except your address) you may do the renewal by phone, mail, or internet. These are the fastest and most convenient methods.
You will receive all the instructions together with the renewal notice from the Office of Motor Vehicle. Here is how you should make the process in each method:
