Representatives Dawn Keefer, R-Dillsburg, and Seth Grove, R-Dover, are teaming up to help their constituents replace damaged or illegible license plates at an upcoming free event in Dover.

The free damaged license plate replacement event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 8 at Dover Area High School, 4500 Intermediate Ave.

The event will give residents the opportunity to easily obtain new, readable license plates to replace damaged or illegal plates without even having to get out of their car, according to a press release. North York County Regional Police will check the plates and determine if they need to be replaced.

Drivers must bring their unexpired Pennsylvania driver’s license and current registration card. This event is reserved for holders of standard or personalized plates.

Specialty plates such as those for veterans, Pennsylvania zoos, college alumni, etc. cannot be processed during this event. If you have a damaged special plate, you will need to work directly with PennDOT to replace it, the statement said.

A license plate is deemed unreadable when one or more numbers or letters cannot be recognized at 50 feet or if the license plate exhibits blistering, chipping, discoloration or loss of reflectivity.

Drivers must register in advance to attend. Motorists who live in the Keefer area should go to to fill out the form or call 717.432.0792 for more information. Residents of the Grove neighborhood should go to to complete the registration form or call 717.767.3947 for more information.
