Missourians have the option to register qualifying motor vehicles every two years rather than every year. The required registration fee for the biennial license has been doubled (to ensure no loss in revenues to Missouri's state highways) and Missourians still have the option of renewing their vehicle registrations every year. All even model year vehicles have the option during even-numbered calendar years and odd model year vehicles have the option during odd-numbered calendar years.
Similarly, based on the model year of the vehicle, a vehicle safety inspection is good for two registration years (unless the vehicle is sold during that two-year inspection period).
