Default how much to expect to pay for registration transfer

How much would it be reasonable to pay for transferring an existing, valid
license/tag over to a new car? In case it matters, the registration/tag was
just renewed (prior to purchase of new car) and the new tag is valid for
entire year of 2012.

Just to make it clear, I have an existing license plate from trade-in,
registration and tag (valid all of next year 2012) and am transferring this
plate/registration/tag to new Honda.

Honda dealer has quoted "..Tag/Registration Fees(estimate): $298.75...."

I don't know if this is state specific but would appreciate any insight as I
would hate to discover that I am paying an estimate and would never find out
the true amount paid by dealer to do the transfer.

License plates and registrations are a state matter, so they vary from one
to the other. Where are you?

Transfers are /usually/ pretty inexpensive. Sounds like your dealer is
marking this item up severely.

Why don't you just do it yourself?

That sounds very high and my guess is like $50 or less if you do it
yourself. Call you local motor vehicle registration office (doesn't
matter which office as long as it's in your state) and ask them. They
should be able to give you the exact cost. Also ask them what form
of payment they accept (cash, check, credit card) as well as what you
need to bring with you inorder to do this transaction (ie: proof of
insurance, etc...).

Yes, it is very dependent on where you live as the maximum cost of new tags
and registration varies. That's what that fee is, the maximum it could
possibly be. In NY (where I live) the dealer charges the max and then sends
a refund for that amount minus the actual amount.
