In addition to your monthly payments on your car loan, there are some other costs you’ll need to consider when buying a vehicle.

Some of these costs are one-time fees, while others need to be paid annually to keep your car legal to drive. 

The main fees to consider when buying a new or used car in each state include:

  • Title fees.
  • Sales and use tax. 
  • License plate and registration fees. 
  • Smog inspections, safety inspections, and VIN verifications, if applicable. 

Additional Fees When Buying & Registering a Car

FeeDescription
Dealership and Document FeesDealerships will charge extra fees for document preparation and signing. These are generally one-time fees when making the purchase.
State and Local TaxesState and local sales/use taxes typically apply when buying a car. Annual taxes may also apply when you renew your registration.
License Plate and Title FeesTag and title fees are paid to the DMV in order to register the vehicle in your name. These are renewed annually in most states. 
Insurance premiumsFinally, you’ll need to consider the cost to insure the car. Many lenders will require you to maintain full coverage (comprehensive and collision) for the duration of the loan term. 

Car Insurance Premiums

Additionally, you’ll need to think about how much your car insurance premiums will cost when you finance and register a vehicle.

While you’ll always need to carry a policy that meets the minimum amount of liability coverage, most auto lenders will also require that you have a full coverage policy on the vehicle for the duration of the loan. 

A full coverage policy typically includes:

  • Liability coverage. 
  • Comprehensive coverage. 
  • Collision coverage. 

It can also be a smart idea to carry GAP insurance or Total Loss coverage. 

These additional coverages will better protect you financially if your car gets damaged or stolen, but they will increase the price of your premiums. 

Car insurance rates will vary depending on a variety of factors including:

  • Your age. 
  • Your driving history. 
  • The type of vehicle you drive. 
  • How you drive. 
  • Where you live and store the vehicle. 
  • Your credit score. 
  • Other demographics. 

Be sure to compare quotes from a few different providers when you need a new auto insurance policy. This will ensure you get the coverage you need at the lowest price.
