New license plate procedures coming



April 13, 2018 - 11:00 PM


TOPEKA — Allen County residents who need a new license plate will notice some changes later this year. The state will modernize its license plate process by digitally creating plates on demand and mailing them directly to customers starting Aug. 1.

That means customers who go to the Allen County Treasurer’s Office after Aug. 1 won’t walk out with a license plate when they register a new vehicle or need to order a new plate because one was lost, damaged or stolen. Customers still need to complete the appropriate registration paperwork at the treasurer’s office, Darolyn Maley, Allen County Treasurer said, but staff instead will hand them a 30-day temporary tag and a registration sticker. A permanent plate will be printed by the state and mailed within 10-14 business days. Then, the customer will affix the registration sticker to the new plate and attach it to the vehicle.

The new plates will be flat, rather than embossed.
