Had my license plates stolen in Columbus while I was at an Ohio State game. I reported the plates stolen and went to DMV the following Monday and they told me they could reissue the same plates. I was surprised but said sure. Three weeks later I'm driving with my wife to a Christmas party and I get pulled over. Cop comes up to the car with his gun drawn ordering us out of the car. Turns out that yes, DMV could issue the same plates but they didn't tell me that if they did reissue the plates I would be treated like I had stolen a vehicle if I got pulled over. I didn't even break any traffic laws. The cop was just randomly running plates while stopped at a red light.
The DMV Express here is awesome. Last week I went to renew a vehicle registration at 11:45. Was in and out in literally less than a minute.
