Replacing a Lost Registration in South Carolina
Replacing your lost registration in South Carolina is a fairly simple process. The state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) even lets you take care of it online.
Your current registration must be in good standing to get a duplicate. You'll need to provide your current tag (license plate) number to get started, and you can pay the $1 fee with your credit card.
If your address has changed, you'll need to update your address online first.
You'll need to download and complete an Lost/Stolen or Destroyed License Plate Report Replacement Application (Form
452-A) if your South Carolina license plate has been stolen or lost. Submit the form in person to your local DMV office or by mail to:
- Department of Motor Vehicles
- P.O. Box 1498
- Blythewood, SC 29016
The tag replacement fee is $6, and the DMV will issue you a new tag number. If you had a personalized or vanity plate, the DMV will issue a standard tag. You can apply for a replacement vanity plate using the same combination of letters and numbers after one year, on most tags. For more information, call (803) 896-9638.Other Topics in This Section
