    Your vehicle's registration card, registration stickers, and license plates prove that your vehicle is legally allowed to be driven on Louisiana roads. Fortunately, it's a fairly simple process to request replacements from the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) if necessary.

    Replacing a Lost Registration Card

    For your convenience, the OMV offers drivers three different ways to obtain a duplicate registration card:

    • Visit the OMV website and complete the online duplicate registration request form.
    • Go to your local OMV.
    • Mail a written request with your name, address, license plate number, vehicle identification number (VIN), proof of insurance, and vehicle make and model to:
      • Office of Motor Vehicles
      • P.O. Box 64886
      • Baton Rouge, LA 70896

    The standard fee for requesting a duplicate registration card is $12.00, although some locations may require an additional service charge. Acceptable payment methods include:

    • Cash (if paying at an OMV office)
    • Check (if it includes your driver's license number)
    • Money order
    • Cashier's check

    Replacing Lost License Plates or Registration Stickers

    If you need to request replacement license plates, or tags, for your vehicle, you can do this by visiting your local OMV with a copy of your current registration certificate. You will then be asked to complete a short form before receiving your new plates.

    The standard charge for lost license plates is $10.00 plus an $8.00 handling fee. However, if you renewed your registration by mail and did not receive your registration stickers or new plates within 60 days, you may request a replacement free of charge.

    If you have reason to believe that your registration stickers or license plates were stolen rather than simply lost, the OMV encourages you to file a report with local law enforcement officials after receiving your replacements.
