How do I obtain replacement license plates in FL? Florida

Florida License Plate Replacement

To obtain a replacement rear or front license plate or tag, begin by printing the FL Application for Replacement License Plate, Validation Decal, or Parking Permit form from the DHSMV site.

After you've completed the form, bring it along with your current registration to a county tax collector's office for processing.

That's essentially all you need to do, aside from finding out your replacement fee, which will vary. In some instances, you won't have to pay anything. For example, this is true if you've received a license plate citation by police or your plates were stolen and you reported this crime to law enforcement.

(On that note, it's important to remember that if you drive without a license plate, you could receive a traffic ticket and fine.)

Replacing Special License Plates

Now, if you have special license plates and they're not available through the office, you'll have to mail the paperwork and your payment (if you owe anything) to:

Division of Motor Vehicles
Direct Mail and Title Correction Service
MS #72
Neil Kirkman Building
Tallahassee, FL  32399
