Faded Plates

Any Vermont registration plate faded to a point in which its numbers and letters have impaired identification must be replaced.  A problem with the manufacturing process of plates produced between 2003 and 2005 may cause fading.  Accordingly, a provision of law allows for replacement of faded plates at no cost to the owner if the fading is caused by faulty materials or a problem with the manufacturing process.  

Owners of vehicles displaying faded registration plates should use the following procedure;
