California DMV Registration Card or Sticker Replacement
- A completed REG 156. This form is required for replacement of license plates, stickers and registration card.
- If you are replacing license plates, take with you your damaged plate, or in the case of a single missing plate, take the plate which you currently are in possession of. The DMV must issue two new license plates. They can not replace a single plate by itself.
- Payment for the $23 replacement fee. The $23 fees applies separately to replacement registration card and sticker, and replacement license plates.
- You must be the registered owner of the vehicle
- Your current address must be the same as the address on file with the CA DMV
- If you have one license plate remaining, you must surrender it to the DMV by mail or in person
The DMV does not allow ordering replacement license plates online due to vehicle ownership verification and security reasons. Contact NeedTags.com® at (800) 300-7311 in order to start the replacement license plate process. After verifying your ownership we can ship out replacement license plates as fast as next-day. If the original license plate(s) is found it will no longer be valid and must be returned to the DMV by mail or in-person.
Instructions: After you order a replacement registration card and year sticker through NeedTags, simply request a month sticker, and we'll mail it to you free of charge. In case you're not sure which month sticker was affixed to your license plate, no need to worry. When you enter your vehicle's information into our system, we'll look up DMV records and ensure the correct month sticker is issued to you. Please complete the form above and then respond to our confirmation email with your request to include a month sticker with your replacement order, at no cost. The DMV currently does not allow NeedTags to issue month stickers without a regular replacement order (year sticker & registration card) first.
