return a PLATE

If you are returning a Pennsylvania registration plate that is no longer valid or required, please return the Pennsylvania registration plate to: 

Bureau of Motor Vehicles 
Return Tag Unit 
P.O. Box 68597 
Harrisburg, PA 17106-8597 

Once your plate has been received by PennDOT, it will be marked as a "dead tag" on the vehicle record. By returning your Pennsylvania registration plate to PennDOT, this will help protect you.
