I lost my Wisconsin renewal notice? What do I do?

 License plate renewal notices are mailed to the last known address of the vehicle's registered owner about 30 days before the registration expires. If you have lost your notice, or if you did not receive one, you may download a Substitute Renewal Notice form MV2016 (19 KB). Completely fill out the substitute notice, and mail it with the required renewal fee to the address listed on the form. Or, if you prefer, you may take the notice to any DMV service center offering registration services, for immediate processing. There is an additional $3 fee for renewals done at the customer service center. You may also obtain a substitute at any DMV service center.
Note: If you don't apply to renew your registration on time, state law requires us to assess a $10 late fee. The fee can't be waived for any reason, so be sure to apply to renew your plates before they expire.
Owners of automobiles, and certain other vehicles, also have the option of renewing registration on-line or by telephone (call (800)236-7368 from a touch-tone phone), using a MasterCard or Visa credit card. An additional $2.50 service charge is billed for these transactions. Use of the on-line or telephone renewal system requires a special access code, referred to as an "RRN" number. To use either of these systems, speak to a Motor Vehicle Representative to obtain the RRN number for the license plate you would like to renew, and have that license plate number available when you talk to the Motor Vehicle Representative.
For more information on renewing license plates or to obtain an RRN number if you have lost your renewal notice, contact (608)266-1466 or e-mail bur-veh-services.dmv@dot.state.wi.us.
