Frequently Asked Questions
Applying for a personalized plate allows you to choose your own message (i.e. the lettering on your plate). You can apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles with your chosen message and, if it’s approved, your plates will be made to order.
A specialty plate will have your message (which can also be personalized if you want), but the overall plate will have a different appearance.
A specialty plate has a purpose. It might be a charity license plate that supports a cause close to your heart, or a license plate for veterans or classic vehicles. A specialty plate can even support a particular organization you’re involved in such as Firefighters, Nevada National Guard, or Scouting.
And in case you were wondering, a license plate can be both a specialty plate and personalized. Many people choose to personalize their specialty plate, and so the term ‘personalized license plate’ is sometimes used interchangeably.
The total cost will depend on whether you choose a sequential or personalized message. The good news is that $25 of the initial fee and $20 of the renewal fee supports our work here at Opportunity Village.
*Prices accurate as of May 9, 2022.
DMV offices have sequential plates with the OV design in stock right now. Allow 8-9 weeks for your personalized plates to be manufactured. Do you want personalized plates, but need to drive in Nevada before the 8-9 weeks is up? No problem. You can apply in person at the DMV and they’ll give you a temporary movement permit.
Ordering specialty plates is a relatively simple process in Nevada. If you want a sequential message, OV specialty plates are now in stock at DMV offices. Head into your local branch to get your charity license plate.
There are a few more steps if you want to personalize your message. In Nevada, you can order personalized license plates:
- in person
- by mail
- by fax
First, check for personalized plate availability online. This helps ensure you don’t order plates that are already taken. And if you want to use online services, that’s where you start.
If you want to order them in person, by fax or by mail, you need to get yourself an Application SP 66 (PDF) form. Then it’s just a matter of filling it out and making the appropriate payment.
