Guidelines for Self-Reporting Stolen License Plates

  1. Stolen License Plates may only be reported by the registered owner.
  2. If only 1 license plate was stolen, immediately remove the remaining license plate and discontinue its use. (Failure to do so may result in officers thinking you are the person using the stolen license plate, and you may be pulled over.)
  3. Cancel the license plate registration through the Department of Transportation and request new license plates. You may do this online, by mail or in person at a DMV service center.
  4. Notify the police department if your stolen license plate is recovered.
