The requestor may search and reserve a personalized message on our website or visit the license plate issuing offices to determine if the requested letters and/or numbers are available for issuance. If available, the issuing official will collect the appropriate registration fees and taxes and issue a registration receipt, a sixty (60) day temporary license plate, and month and year decals to be placed on the new license plate. The license plate will be shipped from the manufacturing facility to the registrant (usually within 2-4 weeks).
Once the message has been approved by the Department, the requestor has five (5) business days to visit the license plate issuing official’s office to place an order and pay all required fees. If the requestor fails to register the message within the prescribed timeframe, the message becomes available to the general public.
