Personalized plates

If you custom order your plates online from the DMV, would u have to pay a monthly fee for them or is it just that one time?

Wat do some of your plates say?

In most states I believe it is an annual fee... I have "ROAD-H8R" on mine...

My wife maiden name was "Gross" and 144 is also a "gross" so she had a plate made that reads "JEEP144". So I guess our Jeep is gross.

Ours is an annual fee as well... it's around $45-50 in addition to the standard registration fee each year.

You have to order them, you can't just go pick them up.

In NC it's an annual fee.

Mine is "CMSW" on a Hurricane's plate.

Wife's is "WSMC" on a Kid's First plate.

Those are the first initials of our 4 children's names in age order both ways.




Ok, you can all stop gagging now...

PCOFJUNK on a 79 Blazer with lots of rust and a 400 big block
IDOGLASS my profession, not my hobby
66STANG pale yellow convertible...great car
MCD RX-7 83 model...another great car

I've noticed that some people in this thread are saying that they have to pay a recurring annual fee every year just for having a custom (or vanity) plate in their state.

IMO.. that seems a little excessive!

Here in Pennsylvania, we are only charged a one time fee when you first order a custom plate. After that, we pay just the normal annual vehicle registration fee ($36).. and that single annual fee is the same whether you have a standard issue plate or a custom plate.

Are you in PA?

If so, you can check to see if the plate you want is availability here:

https://www.dot33.state.pa.us/vehicle_services/vrvanity.jsp#top?20101026225856187=201010262258561 87

And it looks like you have to mail in the application form with the $20 fee (and says to allow 8 to 10 weeks for delivery).
