Replacing plates seized by the Police
The replacement of plates seized by police are subject to the usual replacement fees. General issue plates will not be replaced, you will be issued with the next available plate in the current series.
All other plates may be re-ordered. While the registered operator is waiting for the plates to be made, general issue plates may be issued at no fee to allow the vehicle to be driven. There will be no fee to reassign the original plates to the vehicle.
If a VicRoads error, such as a renewal payment allocated to an incorrect vehicle, has caused the vehicle to appear unregistered, plates will be replaced at no fee.
