Sequential license plates are mailed directly to the address on your DMV vehicle record; you should receive them in about 4-6 weeks.
How long does it take to get a license plate in the mail?
In approximately 10 days or less after your order is processed, you will receive new documents that show your current plate number and your new plate combination. Allow at least six weeks for the custom plates to arrive. Your new registration documents will be mailed separately from your new custom plates.

Can I keep my license plate when I buy a new car?
Most standardized license plates transfer with the vehicle upon its sale. Usually the DMV requires you to bring in the old plates so that they can reissue them to someone else. However, the original owner may keep specialized plates. Simply take the plates off of the car and inform the DMV that you are doing so.
Can you drive a vehicle without plates if you just bought it?
Yes, but only if you drive the vehicle directly to the first place of storage (usually your home) within three days of the sale. Do not use the seller’s license plate on the vehicle while driving it home. The seller should keep the license plate.
Do car dealerships give you license plates?
Most dealerships, new or used, should be able to process a vehicle’s registration at the time of purchase. The dealership will charge fees for this, and those are included in the total sale or “out the door” price. Next, you’ll either get your license plate or a temporary registration tag, depending on the state.
