Replacing a Lost Tag

If you ever need to replace your vehicle license plates, you'll need to complete a Duplicate License Plate Application (Form SP14).

You'll need to present this form in person at your local Full Service DMV if the plates were stolen.

If the plates were lost, unreadable or damaged, you can apply for a replacement by mail. The new plates will be mailed to your local Full Service DMV and they'll contact you by mail when the plates are ready for pick-up.

The fees for a replacement license plate is $19 or $15 for a single plate for a trailer or motorcycle. There may be additional fees for specialty license plates. You can pay the fees by check, money order, or credit card. If you pay by credit card, you'll need to complete a Credit Card Authorization Form (Form VP-205) to submit with your application.

You can submit the application and fees by mail, paying with a check, money order, or by completing the credit card authorization on the form. Mail the form to:

  • Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles
  • 555 Wright Way
  • Carson City, NV 89711

If paying by credit card, you can also fax the form to (775) 684-4797.

If you still have your old tags (one not stolen, or the mutilated ones), you'll need to return those to the DMV when you make application for replacements.

The state also gives you the option of renewing your tags at the same time if you wish. You'll be given credit for the unused portion of your registration period, and a new renewal date will be established.
