Personalized License Plates

Centennial Vanity Plate

Red & Yellow Prestige (Vanity)

Any owner of a motor vehicle, including a motorcycle, may apply for the issuance of a special “prestige” or “vanity” registration plate. The traditional yellow and turquoise designs and the Chile plates are available, for both regular and motorcycle prestige plates. Only alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers) can be used.

A yellow prestige plate may have 1-7 characters (1-6 characters for a motorcycle). A turquoise prestige plate may have 1-8 characters (1-6 characters for a motorcycle). A Chile prestige plate may have 1-6 characters (1-5 characters for a motorcycle). The characters can include any combination of letters and numbers. A requested character set may be rejected if 1) it duplicates any existing plate; 2) the division finds it to be derogatory or obscene; or 3) it falsely states or implies that the vehicle or the driver represents the authority of a governmental agency or official. Special characters such as the Zia symbol, hash tag, asterisk, dash, underscore, space, or any other special characters are not allowed.

Fee: $17.00 initially and upon each regular registration renewal.

Prestige Plates can now be ordered online and shipped directly to you. Shipping is free. Go to Online Services and click on Personalized Plate Application.
