The Easy Way to Get a Duplicate Copy of Registration

The Easy Way to Get a Duplicate Copy of Registration

Let’s be honest. When you get a new car, it’s tempting to do everything you can to protect it. 

After driving off the dealership’s parking lot, your thoughts can immediately race to every way you can protect your new vehicle. In fact, several questions and worries might run through your mind. 

Is the person behind me riding my tail? Is the car in the other lane getting too close? Should I park where no one else is around? How’s the weather going to be this week? I hope it’s not supposed to rain. 

It’s normal for you to jump into protection mode as soon as you purchase the latest addition to your family. But in the midst of all those lingering questions that you’re answering to safeguard your new car, are you also asking how you’re going to protect your vehicle registration? 

After all, your vehicle registration is what allows you to drive your brand-new beauty. Without it, you can get a ticket and a pretty hefty one at that.

Your vehicle registration is just as important to protect as your new car. Just like you find a safe place to park your vehicle, you need to find a safe place to put your vehicle registration. And this safe place should be somewhere that will keep your registration in the perfect condition, preventing any and all damage. 

It sounds like a hassle for one measly document. But the reason for this caution is simple: you don’t want to go through the traditional route to get a duplicate copy of registration. 

The typical way to get a duplicate copy of registration

getting a duplicate copy of registration is hard

If you want to replace your vehicle registration, there’s a traditional route that you typically have to take. This route has many paths, allowing you to tailor the journey to your preferences. 

For example, you can replace your damaged, lost, or stolen vehicle registration at the DMV office, through the DMV’s website, or by snail mail. However, each option is time-consuming and comes with multiple frustrations. In fact, here are the specific obstacles that accompany each traditional pathway. 

1. The DMV Office 

Just thinking about the DMV office can make you shudder. Notorious for its stressful environment, the DMV is probably the last place you want to visit to get a duplicate copy of vehicle registration. 

The lines are obnoxiously long. The employees are sometimes unhelpful. And the customers are likely in a bad mood just because they have to be there. But if you decide to take this course of action, you need to arrive at your local DMV with the right documents in hand. 

Before your visit, go online and download the application for duplicate vehicle registration. If your state’s DMV has a website that’s user friendly and easy to navigate, you shouldn’t have much trouble finding the application. But if the site is outdated, loads slowly, and is hard to follow, it might take a little longer to find the document. 

However, once you manage to discover and download it, you only need a couple of other items. You have to provide your permit, driver license, non-driver ID, or other proof of identity. And you need to have the payment to purchase the new registration. 

After you’ve compiled all of this information, the next step is simple: go to the DMV and wait for hours for someone to assist you. 

2. The DMV’s website 

If something is online, then it has to be more efficient, right? 


Just because you can do something online doesn’t always mean it’s simpler. This argument is especially true if you’re trying to navigate a DMV’s website. 

As mentioned in the point above, the efficiency that you experience on a DMV’s site will depend on how well that site is designed. Most DMV websites are hard to navigate, slow to load, and outdated, all of which can lead to a terrible user experience. What’s worse is that you could go through this awful experience only to find out that you can’t get a duplicate copy of registration for your specific vehicle. 

For example, in New York, you can’t replace your registration online for several types of motor vehicles, including:

  • Transporter vehicles 
  • Trailers 
  • Motorcycles (or other vehicles with plate stickers)
  • Boats 
  • Snowmobiles 
  • Vehicles with a suspended, surrendered, revoked, or expired registration
  • All-Terrain vehicles 
  • Cars that were made before 1973
  • Vehicles that you registered through the DMV’s International Registration Bureau

That’s a long list that can easily apply to you. But if your vehicle manages to qualify for the DMV’s online option, you can use this service. All you need is your vehicle plate number, registration class, the ZIP code on your registration, and a payment method. 

However, if you can’t apply online for a duplicate copy of registration, your only choices are to go to the DMV or get the document through snail mail. 

3. Snail Mail 

In an age where convenience is king and efficiency is queen, it’s unlikely that you’ll want to apply for and receive your duplicate copy of registration through the mail. 

With this option, not only do you have to mail certain items to the DMV, but you also have to wait for the DMV to send you what you need. To get your registration through the mail, you have to send the DMV three documents: 

  • A completed application for the duplicate registration
  • A photocopy of your driver license
  • A money order or check to pay for the registration 

Once the DMV receives this information, a representative will process your application to get your new registration. But as with most processes that happen via snail mail, it might take ten business days to get your duplicate copy of registration. And that’s if the DMV doesn’t find anything wrong with the material you submitted.
