You are also required to have liability insurance on your vehicle at the time it is licensed. The minimum coverage will run around $200(USD). A driver's license will cost $20 (USD).

Transporting your Vehicle using Different Methods.
There are different types of shipping methods to help you transport your vehicle to Marshall Island. The first method of shipping is the Roll On/Roll-Off method. The Roll On/ Roll Off method is an affordable way to transport a vehicle from the U.S to a different port. The vehicle will need to be cleaned before it can be imported. There can be no air conditioning gas left in your vehicle. You will only be able to allow the spare key, a tire, and mats in the vehicle during import.
Container shipping method is also another option when it comes to shipping. With container shipping, the vehicle is placed inside of a container where it is then sealed up and prepared for transport. Once the taxes are all cleared, the vehicle can then be released to you, the owner. You will have a few weeks to get it licensed.
