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.

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.
