The limit reflected on the Plates on Demand System is not automatically refilled. Please keep this in mind and make a request to increase your limit as soon as you become aware that you may need more. In most cases an audit is necessary to increase your plate limit. Interim plate limits are reset on your license expiration date.
To request an increase in interim plate limit, you must complete State Form 56140, available at: http://www.in.gov/sos/dealer/2383.htm. You can complete this form by mail or online through your dealer portal at https://dealers.sos.in.gov/.

Will each dealer have a username and password for the Plates on Demand system?
Yes. The primary owner listed on the dealer license will establish the initial online account. Once the relationship to the dealer’s online account is established, the primary owner becomes the “Master User” and may assign user roles to other employees.
Instructions for establishing your online dealer account and assigning user roles can be found at: http://www.in.gov/sos/dealer/4461.htm.
How should I print the interim plates for my customers?
Interim license plate should be printed on white paper with black ink to provide uniformity among all interim plates. State and local law enforcement are aware of the proper appearance of interim plates. Users should select “Actual Size” in Print Options when printing to ensure the plate prints correctly.
How should a customer display the vehicle interims plate on their car?
Interim plates must be displayed in the same manner as a metal license plate or may be affixed to a window on the left side of the motor vehicle facing the rear of the motor vehicle in a way that is clearly visible and unobstructed.
