Replace an inspection sticker

How do I replace an inspection sticker?

Write a letter to the DMV that explains the reason for the replacement, and include either 

  • a copy of your inspection receipt


  • the serial number of the original inspection sticker, if available
  • the year and make of the vehicle
  • the vehicle plate number
  • the odometer reading at the time of the last inspection
  • the date of the last inspection
  • your daytime phone number


  • the $2 fee for the replacement (check or money order payable to "Commissioner of Motor Vehicles")
