Special Interest License Plate Ordering System

Before beginning your order, you must acknowledge that you have read the following.


  1. The license plate ordered will be assigned to a vehicle in my possession.
  2. The number "69" is reserved only for 1969 year model vehicles that the license plates will be placed upon.
  3. Once a license plate is purchased (ordered), no refunds will be issued unless the plate configuration is denied.
The availability of the license plate selection you reserve on this site is subject to final approval by DMV.

Rights to Refuse Plate Selection (California Code of Regulations, Title 13, Article 3.1, Special Interest License Plates):

When a desired configuration is not available, a letter shall not be substituted for a number, nor shall a number be substituted for a letter, to create another configuration of a similar appearance. (For example: NICE already issued; cannot replace the letter "I" with the number "1" to obtain N1CE)

The Department shall refuse any configuration that may carry connotations offensive to good taste and decency, or which would be misleading, based on criteria which includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  1. The configuration has a sexual connotation or is a term of lust or depravity.
  2. The configuration is a vulgar term; a term of contempt, prejudice, or hostility; an insulting or degrading term; a racially degrading term; or an ethnically degrading term.
  3. The configuration is a swear word or term considered profane, obscene, or repulsive.
  4. The configuration has a negative connotation to a specific group.
  5. The configuration misrepresents a law enforcement entity.
  6. The configuration has been deleted from regular series license plates.
  7. The configuration is a foreign or slang word or term, or is a phonetic spelling or mirror image of a word or term falling into the categories described in subdivisions 1 through 6 above.

Annual Renewal Fees:

When a plate is on a registered vehicle, you will be charged an Annual Plate Renewal Fee at the time of renewal. If the plate is not on a registered vehicle, you must pay an Annual Retention Fee to retain your interest in the license plate.

Plate Pick-Up:

You will receive up to three (3) postcards to pick up your plates. Failure to pick up your plates within 30-days of the final notice will result in the plates being destroyed and the selection made available to others. Once notified, you may make an appointment online or call 1-800-777-0133.
