1: Get Started with Online Application Assistance

Application assistance services can simplify the process for many OMV related services for a fee, including: renewing your license, applying for a license, registering a vehicle, replacing your license, changing your address and more. In addition to assistance in preparing official forms, the value added services and products you will receive include a comprehensive Easy Guide™ containing information relevant to your service needs; 30 days of both emergency Roadside Assistance and the Repair Assist consultation service from Road America. Other benefits include an ongoing monthly newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering important updates that affect drivers, important safety tips, trends, legislative updates and ways to save money on vehicle-related services.

2: By mail

Some drivers prefer to handle the renewal process by mail, rather than taking advantage of assistance services, visiting the OMV in person, or via available online services. Service by mail is available with limitations. Read below for additional details or visit your local OMV.

3: Via a OMV office

If your specific needs require an in-person visit, most, if not all, driver license services can be handled at your local OMV office. Varying OMV offices sometimes supply different types of services so you will need to check before your visit to make sure the OMV closest to you provides the service you require. In addition, you can call to see if your OMV allows you to make a personal appointment.

Replacing Your Louisiana Car Registration

Lost your Louisiana car registration? You can apply for a duplicate (for a fee of $12) in person at any OMV office, online, or by mail. 

If you wish to replace your Louisiana car registration online, you may need to also have the owner, and co-owner’s, information, such as date of birth, social security number, license plate number, etc.

If you would rather renew your registration by mail, send a written request including your name, address, license plate number, vehicle’s VIN number, proof of insurance, and vehicle make and to:

P.O. Box 64884
Baton Rouge, LA 70896

If you prefer, you can head into your local OMV office to apply for a duplicate Louisiana vehicle registration certificate.
