Losing your Connecticut registration card can be a real hassle, if you're pulled over by the police and cannot prove ownership of your vehicle. But the DMV makes it easy to replace a lost registration in person or by mail.
The DMV does not offer online services for obtaining a duplicate registration.
You can get a duplicate at any full-service DMV office. Fill out an Application for a Duplicate Motor Vehicle Registration before you go. You will be asked to provide your license plate number. The cost is $20.
You can also get a duplicate registration by mail. Just send a written request and the $20 fee to the Connecticut DMV. Make sure to include your name and address, license plate number and your signature in the letter.
Your check or money order must be made out to the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles. Send the letter and payment to:
- Department of Motor Vehicles
- Customized Services Division - Duplicate Registrations
- 60 State St.
- Wethersfield, CT 06161
The charge for replacement plates is $25. If your plates were stolen, there is no fee, but you will need to show a written police report on the incident.
Lost or stolen vanity plates are replaced with standard "off-the-shelf" plates. Please note that there is a 10-month waiting period when applying for the same vanity plates that you lost or were stolen.Other Topics in This Section
