License Plate Entry Hints: 

1. Do not enter any spaces in the license plate even if there are spaces. 

2. Passenger vehicles do not use the letters I, O and Q in the second or fourth position (for California). 

3. Commercial vehicles do not use the letters I, O and Q (for California). 

4. If you have a personalized plate with less than seven characters, or if you have a special character within your plate (heart, star, etc.), you will skip the special character and enter in the rest of the characters remaining on the plate. 

5. If you have a new vehicle with a temporary, paper license plate, use the temporary license plate number and enter the full VIN in the VIN field. Please note that VINs do not contain the letters O, I and Q so that they are not confused with the numbers 0, 1 and 9.  Once you receive the DMV issued permanent license plate, make contact with our office to update the vehicle information.
