Registering and Titling Outboard Motors
Outboard motors, regardless of horsepower (excluding electric trolling motors), are required to have a Certificate of Title and to be registered with the state of Missouri.
- Application for a title and for registration must be made within 60 days of purchase or entry into the state.
- The registration of a motor is permanent as long as ownership is not changed.
- Owners of registered motors are issued a motor registration decal, which should be displayed on the left side of the outboard motor.
