If a police officer pulls you over and you cannot present proof of registration, you may receive a traffic ticket.

To replace lost vehicle registration credentials, you typically need to visit your local tax collector’s office to purchase a duplicate document in person. However, the specific process of replacing lost, stolen or unreadable registration credentials varies slightly depending on your county and the type of document you wish to replace.
