            Through our quality review process, we have discovered that plates are being surrendered that don’t belong to that customer.  When a license plate needs to be cancelled and it is not available for surrender, an affidavit will be accepted (see Technical Advisory R05-02), however, identification (as per DMV Procedure TL-01) must also be submitted so the registered owner of the license plate may be verified in FRVIS.

 

            RS-43, Surrender Of A License Plate And Registration, has been updated to reflect this change.

                       

            If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact your Help Desk Representative.
