If you are a motorcycle rider in Florida and lose your license plate, don’t worry! You can get a replacement plate very easily.
At The Fran Haasch Law Group, we want all riders to be safe and stay legal. If you’re going to replace your license plate, we’ve got you covered.
Registering Your Motorcycle
Before you can get a Florida license plate, you’ll need to register your motorcycle. Your registration and license plate are renewed annually. To register your motorcycle and get a valid license plate, you’ll need your driver’s license and an initial registration fee of $41.15.
Replacement License Plates
It is illegal to ride without a proper license plate displaying your current Florida motorcycle registration. If you have lost or damaged your license plate, request a replacement as soon as possible. You can make a replacement request for regular and specialty license plates at your local license plate agency. It’s important to note that only the vehicle’s registered owner can apply for the replacement plate. To get a replacement, you’ll need:
- A copy of your motorcycle registration certificate
- License plate number or vehicle identification number
- A completed Application for Replacement License Plate
- Replacement fees
What if My License Plate Was Stolen?
If your license plate is stolen, you will need to request a replacement. Replacing a stolen license plate is similar to replacing a lost or damaged license plate. Owners of stolen license plates or decals must file a police report. Information from the report must be included when completing an Application for a Replacement License Plate. All fees are waived for replacing stolen plates or decals.
Disposal of Florida License Plates
If you wish to dispose of your old license plate, you may return it to a DMV office in person or by mail, along with a request to cancel and recycle the license plate.
