All vehicles newly registered with DC DMV receive Taxation Without Representation tags automatically. If you are obtaining new regular tags and do not want the Taxation Without Representation tags, please inform the DC DMV employee when you register your vehicle, and you will receive the www.dc.gov website tags.
To exchange your current tags for Taxation Without Representation tags, please bring the following to a DC DMV service center:
- Vehicle registration
- Valid DC DMV driver license, learner permit, or identification card of the vehicle’s registered owner(s)
- Existing vehicle tags
Additionally, you may exchange your existing valid tags for Taxation Without Representation tags by paying a tag replacement fee at any DC DMV Service Center location. Information on DC DMV service centers is available at the link below:
NOTE: If you do not surrender your existing tags, you will be liable for any tickets that may be issued to your old tags.
