Create A Plate
Virginia offers more than 200 special plates allowing people with a common interest to identify or promote themselves or their cause. Many of our special plates represent the military, emergency personnel, fraternal orders and civic or community organizations, as well as colleges and universities, conservationists and hobbyists.
In addition to displaying special plates, motorists can add a personalized character combination to their plates using up to seven characters. Personalized plates cost just $10 a year in addition to the vehicle registration and special plate fees.
Review DMV's Personalized Plate Guidelines and Restrictions before you create your personalized plate character combination. After that, you can create a personalized character combination for your vehicle.
