Replace your damaged plates
If your registration is current, you can replace your damaged plate(s) online. To complete your individual request online, you’ll need to have the following:
- Your first and last name exactly as it appears on your current driver's license
- Your date of birth
- Your driver’s license number
- Plate class (e.g., passenger, combination, commercial, etc.)
- A credit or debit card
- The fee for regular plates is $25
- The fee for replacing vanity plates is $25 ($15 for the Long Island Sound or flag-style veteran plates)
As an organization, if the DMV does not have your Secretary of State number on file, you must first contact us to have this added to your organization customer record prior to conducting an online transaction.
Replace your lost or stolen license plates
If your plates have been lost or stolen, you’ll need to notify your local police department and get a police report.
Here’s what to do next:
Step 1: Gather what you’ll need
- Complete the lost or stolen marker plate notice (Form E-159)
- Police report
- Registration certificate
- Connecticut Insurance Identification Card, provided by your insurance carrier
- Remaining plate (if any)
- Form of payment
Step 2: Make an appointment
Step 3: Get your replacement plates
Two off-the-shelf plates will be issued to you during your appointment.
- $5 with a police report
- $25 without a police report
The police report needs to indicate the plate was stolen. Case numbers aren’t accepted in lieu of the police report.
