Chapter 11: Transfers

11.050 Disabled Veteran (DV) License Plates

In addition to the procedures listed in the Basic Transfer Requirements section in this chapter, when a vehicle with DV License Plates is transferred, the following must be submitted:

  • The DV License Plates from the vehicle.
  • Full-year registration fees, transfer fee, and any other fees due. Refer to the information below if the vehicle is a trailer coach.
  • Assign a 12-month registration year from the date of sale by the disabled veteran.
  • Issue new license plates and stickers.

Trailer Coaches—Disabled veterans pay a reduced vehicle license fee (VLF) for trailer coaches. If ownership is transferred to someone not eligible for the DV License Plate fee exemption, the balance of the annual VLF prorated from the month of transfer to the end of the registration year is due in addition to any other fees.

Prorated VLF may be due or refundable when a nonqualified joint owner affecting the percentage of ownership is added or deleted.
