When will I receive my plate?

We need to collect 300 applications and fees. Once we reach 300, UNC Asheville will submit these to the NC DMV for the original production.

New plate applications are accepted Feb. 15 of each year. Following that, the DMV has 180 days to put the plates into production. Thus, we estimate that plates will be in production no later than Aug. 15, 2019.

Can I personalize my special plate?

Yes! For an additional $30 (total of $55 annually) you can choose the four letters/numbers of your UNC Asheville license plate. On the form, list your first two options of letter/number sequence. We will submit the 300 forms in the order they are received. The DMV will contact you, either by phone or mail, if your first two options are already taken.

How do I receive my first plate?

The DMV will mail your plate to the address on your application. If you move within the state, please update your address with the DMV. Once in production, you can order and renew your license plates directly through the DMV online, by mail or at your nearest license plate agency.
