If you need to use another vehicle temporarily that is not listed on your permit, please fill out the Temporary Vehicle Change (TVC) web form below. You may also call our Customer Service Center at (718) 433-3100 Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. To request a TVC after business hours you may call NYC 311. If you are outside of New York City, call (212) 639-9675; for TTY call (212) 504-4115.
A temporary change may be requested for up to 14 days. Please note that company, business, temporary, taxi, dealer, transporter or commercial plates are not authorized for TVCs.
You must report a TVC immediately before using your temporary vehicle – failure to do so may result in a summons that cannot be dismissed or your permit may be confiscated. Plates that are in judgment at the NYC Department of Finance may not be used for a TVC. Check to confirm your vehicle is not in judgment.
Please note: Company, business, temporary, taxi, dealer, transporter or commercial plates are not authorized for a TVC.
