Restoring lost/stolen/destroyed documents and registration plates

In case the registration certificate or registration plate is lost, stolen or has become unusable, document replacement or a duplicate registration plate can be applied for.

In order a new registration certificate or registration plate to be issued, an application and an explanatory letter stating the reasons for the replacement of the document/registration plate must be submitted through the Road Administration’s e-service or at the service bureau.

A duplicate registration plate means that the number and letter combination will stay the same.

A state fee should be paid for issuing a new registration certificate or registration plate (duplicate).

In case the registration certificate is stolen or destroyed as a result of a fire and a proper certificate by the Police and Border Guard Board or Rescue Board is submitted, the state fee rate for issuing a new registration certificate is lower. More information can be found in the article about state fees.
