Required Vehicle Inspection and Issuing of New License Plates for Using a Recovered Vehicle

When a vehicle is stolen, the car owner shall report it to the police and register the cancellation at a Motor Vehicle Office. If the stolen vehicle is found, the owner shall proceed with the car inspection and file for a re-issuing of the license plate before using the recovered vehicle.
  According to the Local Tax Bureau, when a vehicle is stolen, the owner shall register the cancellation at a Motor Vehicle's Office with a vehicle lost certificate issued by the police while the vehicle license tax of the current year shall be calculated to the day before the vehicle was stolen. For those who have paid the tax for a whole year, the remaining amount shall be refunded.
  The Bureau further explained that if a vehicle is stolen, the owner often reports to the police but after the vehicle is found, the owner is likely to forget to proceed with the re-issuing of a license plate at a Motor Vehicle's Office. If a recovered vehicle is used on the road without a re-issued license plate, an amount of tax to be recovered plus a fine two times lower than the amount of tax to be recovered will be charged. Hence, before using the recovered vehicle, do remember to apply for a license plate re-issuing!
