    Default License Plate Renewal ??

    I am new to car ownership in the DR.

    I recently bought the revista sticker for my car.

    I hear that I may need to get stickers for my licence plates?

    Is this true? I live in Santo Domingo. Where do I have to go? What is the process? Cost?

    Thank you.

    Cheers

    It was in dr1 daily news of 29 April.

    License plate renewal by Internet
    Vehicle owners can renew their license plates over the Internet if they so wish, according to Juan Hernandez, the head of Internal Revenue. Cars dated before 1999 will cost RD$1,200 and for those that are newer, the price will be RD$2,200. The new prices for the sticker are less than the last renewal process, with savings of between RD$150 and RD$1,000 over the 2003 figures. According to El Caribe there will even be a delivery service. All you have to do is click on http:/www.dgii.gov.do and go to "Servicios Web", enter your "cedula" and the number of your license plate. You can pay with any of the local credit cards. By phone, an owner can call 809 549 3444. In five days in Santo Domingo and in seven days in the rest of the country, the owner of the vehicle should receive a sealed envelope with the new stickers. You will have to present a copy of the vehicle's registration to receive the envelope.

    Question confused

    How are they possibly going to deliver the plates in an envelope in 7 days. They can't deliver mail in a year. If the mailmen can't read how are they going to deliver your car tags. Just a question from a newbie

    What if the car is still in the previous owners name?

    Not a big deal Escott, all you need is the 'cedula' of the previous owner or have him do the renewal for you...LOL My wife usually does both our cars without a problem. They are both under my name. All my wife takes is my 'cedula' (matricula and cash...hehe) and doesn't run into any problems. Last time she renewed our cars she said that she had to provide her 'cedula' too but in that case the plates were changed from the ugly brownish-orange to the nicer two tone yellow-white.

    I don't know. The old, now discontinued, brownish-orange plates were here for quite some time. I suppose that the new yellow-white plates will have the same fate. I assume things will go back to how they were before the old plates were swapped out. Every year when you renew your plates, prior to the plates being changed, you would get a sticker (marbete) to place on your windshield. However last year, when the actual plates changed, there wasn't a need for a sticker on the windshield to identify your vehicle as one that paid for the yearly plates (road taxes). The new plate itself severed to identify vehicles that paid. This year we will be getting stickers for our windows as usual. All else being equal, you should expect the newer yellow-white plate to last a decade or two.....hehehe
