Canceling Your License Plate

Louisiana license plates can be turned in at any Office of Motor Vehicle location, through the mail, or cancelled through our online service.

Because Louisiana law requires all vehicles registered in the state to maintain liability insurance, plates must be canceled BEFORE canceling liability insurance.


It is not necessary to turn in license plates that have been cancelled through our online service, however, it must be removed from the vehicle and destroyed.
