Discusses the registration stickers law in the state of Florida and provides additional information on vehicle registration.
If you were cited by police for a missing or damaged license plate or validation decal/sticker, you won't have to pay a replacement fee. It's the same case if your sticker or license plate was stolen and you reported this matter to law enforcement. However, don't drive around with a missing or damaged Florida plate/sticker or with an expired vehicle registration. You can get traffic ticket and be obliged to pay a fine.
In case of lost or damaged vehicle's registration card, license plate(s) or stickers, you may apply for a replacement with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Remember that you cannot obtain replacement license plates or stickers for vehicles that are not currently registered.
