Vehicle Registration Collections - Contact Information
If you want to talk to someone about a collection notice, you must be the registered owner of the vehicle or have a power of attorney from the registered owner.
Before you call, have the account number ready.
For a delinquent vehicle registration debt, the account number is the vehicle license plate number followed by the last year the vehicle was registered.
For a dishonored check debt, the account number begins with the letter D.
