Now Available for Your Vehicle Plate Registrations

What are enhanced security tabs?

The Department of Revenue is producing “enhanced security tabs” that display a vehicle’s unique license plate number directly on the tab itself, thereby enabling law enforcement to quickly and easily detect whether the tab on the vehicle matches the license plate.

What are the benefits of receiving enhanced security tabs?

  • License plate number is printed on the tab
  • Tabs are printed in a large, easy-to-read font
  • Tabs are used for all vehicle type registrations
  • Tabs are easily placed in the middle of the regular license plates
  • Perforations (kiss-cuts) in the tab reduce tab theft
  • Law enforcement can identify tab and plate association
