Pennsylvania’s Megan’s Law is the State Police’s obligation to create and maintain a sex offender registry. Such registry must include persons convicted of Certain Sexual Offenses in Pennsylvania or another jurisdiction.
Anyone who has entered a plea of guilt or has been found guilty of sexual offenses must also appear in this registry. The law applies to anyone who resides, visits, works, carries a vocation, or attends school in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania General Assembly determined that publicizing information about registered sexual offenders is necessary for public safety. Thus, anyone can access the information on registered sexual offenders through Pennsylvania’s State Police website for Megan’s Law for public protection reasons only.
First, the law allows PennDOT to replace a registration plate upon request of a vehicle owner when an authorized representative of PennDOT or law enforcement determines that a registration plate is illegible. Vehicle safety inspection mechanics are authorized representatives of PennDOT for purposes of determining if a registration plate is legible.
To apply for a free replacement of your current registration plate, the vehicle owner should print Form MV-46, “Application to Replace Registration Plate,” obtained from PennDOT’s Driver and Vehicle Services website and taking it to either a law enforcement official or a certified inspection station to verify the need for a replacement due to illegibility. The vehicle owner is then responsible for signing and returning the completed Form MV-46 (PDF) to PennDOT in order to receive a replacement registration plate free of charge.
