    Call Troop "C" and they can advise you. Sorry, don't have the number. Missouri State Patrol.

    Or..... try the License Bureau office in Jeff City.

    I ran into the same issue earlier this year. Either call or drop by the license office and they can hook you up with all the forms you will need. I had to take the boat and outboard to water patrol and have them inspect them and the trailer to highway patrol for an inspection as a homemade trailer. with both these inspections and half a dozen other forms filled out, you can mail it all off to Jeff city with the fees and they will mail everything back to you. Not an easy process but doable.. best thing to do is call Jeff city and find out exactly what the forms are you need and what the fees are. I have the number somewhere i can give you, let me know if you need it. Good luck.
