"Section 56-3-1320. The Department shall charge a fee of six dollars for every license plate or revalidation sticker issued as a replacement except those vehicles whose fees are prescribed by Section 56-3-660. If a special personalized plate is replaced by a license plate for which the initial registration fee is set by Section 56-3-620, the Department shall charge a fee of six dollars. If the special personalized plate is replaced by a new special personalized plate, the Department shall charge a fee in the same amount as the original fee. The Department shall require proof of the payment of taxes when issuing a replacement plate or replacement revalidation sticker. A fee of one dollar must be charged for postage and handling if the replacement plate or sticker is to be mailed to the owner. The Department may not charge a fee for every duplicate registration card issued as a replacement for a registered and licensed vehicle, but a fee of one dollar must be charged for every other type duplicate registration card issued by the Department."
