Decals on Demand

Jul 22nd, 2014

Davidson County’s Certificate of Vehicle Registration has changed.  The registration is smaller and includes a decal with your license plate number printed directly on it.  Old decals should be removed and the new decal should be affixed to the license plate in the upper right hand corner.  Once the decal is affixed to the plate it should not be peeled off for repositioning as the decal may tear.
