    Obtaining Duplicate Registration Certificates

    Lost vehicle registration papers can be easily replaced in Nevada. The Application for Duplicate Certificate of Registration and/or Substitute Decal (form VP 013) requires the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), the license plate number, and the expiration date along with your name and address. The fee for a duplicate registration is $5.

    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 may also fax the form to (775) 684-4797.

    Replacing a Lost Tag

    If you ever need to replace your vehicle license plates, you'll need to complete a Lost, Stolen, or Mutilated License Plate Affidavit (Form VP 202) stating that the tag has been lost, stolen, or mutilated. The state doesn't require you to file a police report unless you have suspect information and plan to prosecute.

    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, 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 tag are $5, plus additional fees for specialty tags, and a $.50 Prison Industries Fee. 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.
