TODAY’S TIP: Stay compliant. Independents are responsible for their own registrations. Leased owner-operators have the option of doing it themselves or letting the company they are leased to handle it. Generally, the company deducts the cost from the driver’s settlements.

You even could get billed for whatever you owe on the plate you’re no longer using.
