Vehicle Registration and License Plates

The State provides information about registering to receive license plates for all types of vehicles. Information is also available about replacing, transferring, or surrendering license plates.

To replace a photo document or license plates lost in a crime, you can go in person to a Police Precinct and have form MV-78B filled out by the police. If no crime was involved, complete form MV-44. To replace vanity plates, call the DMV Custom Plates Unit.
