When a registration is lost, destroyed, or mutilated, customers may obtain a duplicate registration for their vehicle. The process is fairly simple to obtain a duplicate registration. A person entitled to the registration may come into our third party office to complete the process. The expiration date will be identical to the lost, destroyed, or mutilated registration.
A duplicate registration may be issued for any vehicle which has a currently valid registration. Also, there must not be any prohibitive actions or codes on the customer’s MVD record, or the vehicle’s MVD record. A duplicate registration may only be picked up by the registered owner, a family member with the same last name and address as the registered owner, or by using a notarized Power of Attorney form from the registered owner. Alternatively, the duplicate registration may also be mailed to the registered owner, but only at the address on file for that owner.
Customers will be required to show ID in our office. The cost to obtain a duplicate registration is minimal, ($4.00 as of the date of writing) and a small convenience fee is added when this service is performed in our office.
When obtaining a replacement license plate, a duplicate registration and tab is also generated.
