Plate Transfer Appointment vs. Vehicle transfer appointment

Updated: Dec 8, 2021

What is a plate transfer appointment:

A plate transfer appointment is when your TLC vehicle license, not dmv plate license is given new plates. You would do this whenever you are changing plates on a TLC licensed vehicle, this could happen when your plates are lost or stolen somehow. Nowadays, it's mostly used for plate storage removal if you FS6 (surrendered ("destroyed") your plates).

Here are all the requirements you will need when you go to TLC for them:

Bring original Title;

if adding back the same car bring the old DMV registration ;

if adding a new car bring the MV-82 DMV form

if the newly added car's title isn't under your name yet because it was recently purchased then bring the sales tax receipt to the TLC because they can't process sales tax.

DMV plate surrender receipt (FS-6 form if it was FS-6);

updated For-Hire Insurance Certificate (FH-1) issued within the last 45 days;

Certificate of Liability (insurance)

Declaration page (insurance)

photo ID;

Power of Attorney (if applicable);

company Filing Receipt;

complete FHV Transfer application;

signed Vehicle License Storage Form.

Please note that cash is NOT accepted at the counter(money order/ credit cards only).

What is a vehicle transfer appointment:

A vehicle transfer appointment is for when you are changing the car under the TLC license and the plates stays the same. An example would be if you bought a new car and want to move plates from the old car to the new car and you need to change the registration to match the new car with the new vin #.
