Lost czech plate numbers?

What happens if I lose my Czech plate number?
If you by any chance lose one or both of the car plate numbers, you are not allowed to drive with the vehicle, otherwise, you can face a fine of up to 10.000 CZK or even be banned from driving for up to 12 months. That means, that even if you realize you lost the plate number whilst driving, it is in your best interest to immediately stop the vehicle.

If the plate number was stolen
You will need to report this as theft to the Police. It is necessary, as your number plate could be misused and you could be framed for an offence you did not commit.

Where can I go?
Whether the plate number has been stolen or lost, you can apply for a new one at the Regional Office or Vehicle Registry. If you only lost one of the two plate numbers, bring the other one with you. Other than that, you will need:
  • ID or residency permit;
  • both car certificates (roadworthiness and registration).

How much is it going to cost me?
The price for two car number plates is 450 CZK, for a motorbike, it is 250 CZK. This amount remains the same whether the number plate was stolen or lost.
