    OH Replacing a Lost Registration
    Page Overview

    Need to replace your registration card, stickers, or license plates? You may do so in person, online, or through the mail.

    In Person

    To do it the old-fashioned way, head to a deputy registrar's office with proper identification.

    If you need a replacement registration, the clerk will check your registration on the computer, and issue you a replacement for a $4.50 fee.

    It'll also cost you $4.50 to have replacement registration stickers issued.

    For replacement license plates, the cost is $10.50 for one plate, and $11.75 to replace two.


    You may complete the replacement process online through OPLATES. Just click the replacement option on the top of the page, and follow the instructions.


    To order replacements by mail, you'll need to complete Form BMV 4809 and mail it to:

    • Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles
    • Registration Section
    • P.O. Box 16521
    • Columbus, OH 43216-6521

    You'll need to include a check or money order to pay the appropriate fees, which are listed on the form.
