You may challenge citations issued while your vehicle is missing if the citations were issued after the vehicle was reported stolen and before it is recovered. Please obtain a copy of the police department's stolen vehicle or plate theft report and complete a Citation Review Form. The police report must include the date and time the incident occurred, recovery date (if the vehicle was recovered), and police officer's signature. If the stolen vehicle or plate report does not indicate the recovery date, you must also submit a copy of the vehicle impound release form which indicates the date the vehicle was released back to you.
Lost Vehicle Plate
If you do not have a copy of the police report for a lost vehicle plate, you may submit proof of plate cancellation from the Department of Motor Vehicles.
