2020 license plates

By law, in 2020 vehicles registered in Quintana Roo must have their license plates renewed. So, read on to find out what you need to do. Or contact us if you’d like help with this procedure.

License Plate Renewal

If you drive a vehicle registered in Mexico, chances are you’ll have to change your license plates this year. In Quintana Roo, the frequency set is every three years.

Administrative Requirements

As this is an administrative procedure, you must gather documentation and pay a fee in order to receive your new plates.

The link to pay online is: http://www.tenencias.gob.mx/. Make sure to bring your receipt when exchanging your plates. Alternatively, you can pay the directly at your local SEFIPLAN collection office (modulo de recaudación) when you complete the procedure. You can find the address of your local office via the same link: http://www.tenencias.gob.mx/. Bear in mind that there may be queues, especially this time of year.

In addition to proof of payment, bring the following documentation to replace your old license plates:

  • Original and copy of INE or passport of vehicle owner
  • Proof of up-to-date payment of vehicle registration fees
  • Original and copy of valid driving license of vehicle owner
  • Old license plates
  • Original and copy of proof of address

Arrive Early

Obviously, you are advised to arrive early to your local SEFIPLAN office, to avoid queues. However, be prepared to wait and perhaps even return if your documentation isn’t accepted. Unfortunately, paperwork in Mexico often requires some patience.
