MOTOR VEHICLE OWNERS

 

IF YOU NO LONGER OWN YOUR VEHICLE, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR REGISTRATION.

RETURN YOUR PLATES TO THE NEAREST DMV OFFICE AND OBTAIN A PLATE RECEIPT.

KEEP THIS RECEIPT AND CONTACT YOUR LOCAL ASSESSOR'S OFFICE FOR ANY ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTATION THAT MAY BE REQUIRED FOR A PROPERTY TAX ADJUSTMENT.

 

THE MARKER PLATE RECEIPT REPRESENTS THE CANCELLATION OF YOUR ACTIVE REGISTRATION ONLY, NOT NECESSARILY OWNERSHIP.

 

IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL YOUR REGISTRATION YOU MAY FALL SUBJECT TO THE INSURANCE CANCELLATION PROGRAM.

 

The Department of Motor Vehicles, in conjunction with your local municipal

Assessor and Tax Collector would like to thank you, in advance for your cooperation
