Sometimes obtaining a vehicle’s prior title from the seller can take longer than expected.

If this is happening to you, you might be wondering what will happen if your current temp tag expires.

Licensed Montana auto dealers like can issue a 90-day temp tag within +/-10 days of a 40-day temp tag’s expiration.

Simply email 10 days before your 40-day temp tag expires, and we'll be happy to issue you a 90-day temp tag.

As with 40-day temp tags, a 90-day temp tag may not be issued if the vehicle has been registered.

No more temp tags may be issued after a 90-day temp tag has been issued, but the two temp tags should provide ample time to obtain your vehicle’s prior title.
