Replacing a Lost Registration in Montana
Obtaining a duplicate registration receipt is easy. All that's required is a visit to your local county treasurer's office. You'll be asked for your license plate number. If the number escapes you, cover yourself by bringing in the title. Once your number is confirmed in the file, the county agent will ask for $2. And that's it. You'll exit with a duplicate registration receipt.
Don't delay on obtaining a duplicate. Montana law requires carrying your registration receipt with you when driving.
The license plate decal is the tiny square sticker that affixes to the back of your license plate indicating that your vehicle is legally registered. Without it, you're a police target. So if you lose this decal, it is in your best interest to replace it as quickly as possible.
To regain your decal-legal status, visit your local county treasurer's office with your registration receipt and pay a $1 fee. The county clerk will immediately reissue you a new decal.Other Topics in This Section
