Credential Return Receipt (MC 021)
Motor Carrier is now offering electronic plate surrenders:
- Complete the Credential Return Receipt (MC 021) and take a clear picture or scan it.
- Take a picture or scan the cab card you want to surrender.
- Take a picture of the plate you want to surrender.
- Make sure you are emailing from the email address that is on your Motor Carrier account.
- Send all of the above together to email@example.com.
If these criteria are not met, your plates may not be surrendered. Electronic plate surrenders are for Motor Carrier plates only and we will not surrender regular DMV plates or registrations. Your documents will be processed in the order received and a receipt will be issued.
