Changing license plates

Hi Joe.

The full answer will be with DMV in the state that you're in now.
  1. Mechanically speaking, the license plates will be attached to the car with either two or four screws. Determine the screw type - usually flat or phillips head, sometimes Torx Bit. The plate, and, if installed, License plate frame, will come off the vehicle. Don't do this until you have your new plate or tag.
  2. If you're just installing a new registration tag, take the plate off as above. Give it a cleaning with some window cleaner and paper towels, or with a quick run through the kitchen sink with some dish soap. If you want to be a stickler for instructions, you'll probably be instructed to take the old sticker off. It's most easily done with a razor blade or craft knife, and will likely shred into many pieces when it comes off - they're built that way on purpose to make it hard for people to steal registration tags to make their car look currently registered. With the tag off, make sure the tag area is clean and dry, then peel the new tag and place it in the same spot. Smooth it down with a finger to make sure it's well adhered.
  3. With a new tag on, bring the plate back to the car, align the license frame if you had one, and re-attach the screws. Tighten them firmly, but don't use a gorilla grip.
  4. If you've moved to a new state, you'll have some period of time to register the car in that state and, likely as not, pass an emissions test. Once you've done that, the new state will likely mail you your new plates, though you may have an option to pick them up at the DMV. Follow the instructions above to take off your old plate(s) and attach the new one(s). Make sure the new plate has a registration sticker on it, or apply the sticker first if it was given to you separately.
  5. If you're in the same state, but, say, got a vanity license plate, it'll likely be much the same for applying for the plate, eventually getting it, and then swapping it in with a current registration tag.
  6. In any event, when you register in a new place, you'll likely be given a temporary registration document for while the plates are made. Make sure you keep that with you until the plates come, so that you can show you're following the rules if you get pulled over. (Make sure a copy of the registration is in the car all the time after that, though be aware that in most, if not all states, you're only required to keep a legible copy of your registration in the car / with you when you drive. Keeping the original out of the car will make it a bit harder on car thieves if they steal your car and try to flip it quick with a registration document that was left in the glove box.
  7. Also be sure to talk with the local DMV about what has to be done with your old plates, if you are switching plates. In many/most cases, they will need to get them from you so that they can be retired from use, and/or sent back to the state of origin.
Hoping this answers your questions, and Happy Holidays!
