Any owner of a motor vehicle, including a motorcycle, may apply for the issuance of a special "prestige" or "vanity" registration plate. Both the traditional yellow and Centennial designs are available.
A prestige plate may have 1-7 characters (1-6 characters for a motorcycle). The characters can include the Zia symbol, spaces, dashes, or 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.
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.
