Special Group Plates

Special group license plates generate funds for specific purposes or honor or recognize specific groups of people. Special group plates have different requirements and fees for obtaining and renewing the plates, described on the linked pages. To obtain a special group plate, you must meet the requirements and pay the required fees. Special group plates consist of a five-character combination on the right with the special group sticker on the left and a descriptive phrase on the bottom. Some special group plates can be personalized, as noted on the linked pages.
