DMV Will Replace Peeling License Plates for Free

OSWEGO COUNTY – Oswego County Clerk Michael C. Backus is reminding drivers that they can have old peeling license plates replaced for free at one of the three Motor Vehicles offices in Oswego County.

Backus said that some NYS license plates which were issued a few years ago are peeling and deteriorating due to a manufacturing defect.

He advises drivers who still have the old peeling plates on their vehicles to “visit one of our three county-run motor vehicle offices and we will replace your peeling plates at no cost.”

Oswego County DMV Offices are located at 384 E. River Road, Oswego, phone 349-8300; 200 N. Second St. (Route 481), Fulton, phone 591-9136; and the H. Douglas Barclay Courthouse, 2 Broad St., Pulaski, phone 298-6521.
