Stolen License Plate FAQ's

Q. If your license plate is stolen, what do I do?

The first thing to do is report the theft to the police. You can order a duplicate plate at any DMV facility. A duplicate plate with validation sticker costs . You can order the same plate number as what was stolen, but we recommend getting a new plate number since the person that stole your plate may be using it on their vehicle. To order a new plate number, we need your title and proof of insurance. If you have a lien on the vehicle, DMV has a form to request the title from the lien holder. While your plate is on order, DMV will provide you with a temporary tag.
