You will be notified by mail when your plates have been shipped to the RMV Service Center listed on your application. Bring your registration and current plates (if applicable) to the RMV Service Center at that time. There is a $20 plate swap fee plus any applicable registration fees due at the time of plate pick-up. These fees will depend on your current plate number and expiration year. The old license plates can be returned the RMV or destroyed. If you qualify to order the plates online, the plates are mailed to your home, you do not need to go to the registry.
