LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

What once took a trip to the nearest revenue office, grabbing a number and waiting in line, can now be done with a simple click of a mouse in your own home.

On Friday, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced that Arkansans can register their vehicles online, making the Natural State one of the first in the United States to do so.

Owners can register their vehicles through the website mydmv.arkansas.gov.

The site will allow Arkansans to register their vehicle, pay sales tax on the vehicle purchase, and buy a new license plate or transfer an existing plate to a new vehicle.

"We are proud to be among the first states to offer online vehicle registration," said Governor Hutchinson. "Through this new service, Arkansans purchasing a new or used vehicle may conduct all follow-up business from the comfort of their own home. Today's announcement is a strong example of our transformation efforts in action, improving the day to day lives of citizens."

According to the Department of Finance and Administration, more than 643,000 vehicles were registered at revenue offices across Arkansas in 2017.

Arkansans can also order duplicate driver's licenses at the website, which launched in January 2018 offering services like checking title statuses, transferring ownership, change of address notifications, and records request among other services.
