If your number plates are stolen, you will need to:
- Report the theft to your local police
- Report the theft to VicRoads
- Pay to have new number plates issued
- Change your registration details
- Change your car insurance details
- Change your toll road (EastLink, CityLink) account details

VACC is proud to sponsor the Victorian Police SAFEPL8 Campaign.
Stolen number plates can create a great deal of inconvenience for you and the theft of number plates from vehicles within our community has increased in the last 12 months.
The purpose of this program is to protect your car from the theft of its number plates and stop their potential involvement in criminal activity, for example, over 50% of fuel theft involves stolen plates.
