Form MV-351, “Application for Temporary Registration Plates by Motor Vehicle Dealers and Full Agents”, has been revised (revision 6-20) to allow agents to choose to pick up a temporary plate order or have PennDOT mail a plate order. When an agent chooses to pick up an order, a PennDOT employee will contact the agent, after the order has been processed, to arrange a date, time and place the agent may pick up the temporary plate order at the Riverfront Office Center. Health concerns will be discussed during the call. Orders that are not picked up will be mailed Priority through the United States Postal Service.

According to the MidAtlantic IADA, PennDOT is moving the packaging, processing and mailing of plate orders to PennDOT from the Pennsylvania Department of General Services warehouse. PennDOT is adding to its staff in hopes of having the plate order backlog cleared by the end of July.
