GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
1. This form should be used to replace any registration plate that was not received within 90 days of the original
issuance date. This form should also be used if replacing a standard registration plate issued more than 90 days
ago. If replacing another type of registration plate issued more than 90 days ago, use the appropriate form for
that plate type. Ex: Form MV-914 should be completed when replacing an Honoring Our Veterans registration
plate. NOTE: All forms can be found on PennDOT's website at www.dmv.pa.gov.
2. Complete applicant information exactly as it appears on current registration card. Print address change in space
provided, if applicable. When applying for a standard issue replacement registration plate, Section E must be
completed instead of Section D. Fee is $11. In order to receive a replacement specialty plate, you must reapply
for the specialty registration using the appropriate form. Individuals should list their PA Driver’s License (PA DL)
or Photo ID # in the space provided. Businesses should list their Business ID # (Bus. ID) where indicated (i.e.
E.I.N.). NOTE: When the application is being submitted through an agent/messenger, a legible photocopy of the
applicant’s valid photo identification (front and back) must be attached.
3. Indicate duplicate or replacement product(s) desired in Section B.
4. To replace a defaced personalized registration plate that is destroyed but not beyond recognition, you must
submit this Form MV-904, "Application for Personalized, Amateur Radio Operator or Press Photographer
Registration Plate," indicating a replacement registration plate containing the same combination of letters and
numbers is being requested along with a picture or tracing of the registration plate for identification purposes. A
registration plate is considered to be defaced when the registration plate is damaged by a specific incident such
as a traffic accident, cutting, scraping or damage caused by intense cleaning or harmful chemicals. There is a fee
of $85 for the replacement of a defaced personalized standard registration plate. The fee to replace an Amateur
Radio Operator registration plate is $11. The fee to replace a Personalized Press Photographer registration plate
is $112. If an immediate replacement registration plate is needed, you must submit this form and an $11
replacement fee. A standard registration plate will be issued until the replacement registration plate can be
provided.
5. When the owner of the registration plate determines that the registration plate is illegible, due to fading or blistering,
and wishes to have the illegible registration plate replaced with a standard issued registration plate free of charge,
the owner of the registration plate must have a local or state police officer complete Section C.
6. If replacing a registration plate, the owner and the co-owner’s signatures are required in Section E. If the vehicle
is owned by a company or a corporation, a letter is required on company letterhead identifying the person who is
authorized to sign in Section E to receive the replacement registration plate on behalf of the business. If the
replacement registration plate is mailed to the company/corporation, the only requirement is a letter on business
letterhead authorizing the representative for the company/corporation to sign in Section E. This letter must be
attached to the application before submitting to PennDOT. In addition, the authorized agent is required to maintain
a copy of the letter on company letterhead authorizing a person to sign in Section E and/or pick up the plate for
the company/corporation for three years.
7. Make check or money order payable to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and mail to the address listed on the
front of the application. DO NOT SEND CASH.
8. Complete Section E instead of Section D, if this application is made within 90 days from date of original issue and
the registration card, weight class sticker or registration plate was never received in the mail. No fee is required.
NOTE: When completing Section E, BOTH parts of Section E MUST be completed.
9. Should you desire to renew your registration in conjunction with this application for a standard issued registration
plate, you must complete Form MV-140 or your registration renewal application and return it with this application.
A $11 replacement fee is required in addition to your registration fee when replacing the current standard issue
registration plate in your possession. NOTE: Duplicate registration cards at time of renewal, transfer or
replacement of registration plate cost $2 each. All other times, a $6 fee is required for a replacement or duplicate
registration card.
