Stolen Plates/Stolen Vehicle
If your vehicle was stolen, you should complete the Lost, Stolen or Mutilated License Plate Affidavit and bring this and any police report to a DMV office. We will cancel the registration and mark the plates as stolen.
If only your plates were stolen, you must apply in person at a DMV office and obtain a new plate number. Please bring the VP 202 affidavit, any remaining plate and any police report.
Lost, Stolen or Mutilated License Plate Affidavit (VP 202)
You must obtain new plates in person at a DMV Office.
All fees for original license plates will apply plus a $5 substitute plate fee. A set of standard license plates costs $12 total. Fees for other plate styles will vary.
It is recommended that you report any lost or stolen plate to your local law enforcement agency in the event your license plates are used in an unlawful manner. However, the Department of Motor Vehicles does not require a police report to accept notification of lost or stolen license plates.
You have the option of renewing your vehicle registration for a full year. Complete an emission inspection if required and if the last test was completed more than 90 days ago. Your expiration date will change if the current expiration date is more than 35 days away. Credit will be given for the unused portion of your current Nevada registration.
