About the Specialty License Plates
UNK specialty license plates are all alpha numeric license plates. Plate numbers will be assigned in the order applications are received. UNK specialty plates are not eligible for special messages.
Once 250 applications are received, the applications will be submitted to the DMV. You will then be notified by the DMV when your specialty plate is ready to be picked up. Additional fees for production of the license plates and new registration may be charged by the County at the time of pick up.
All applications submitted after the 250 initial applications will be processed directly through the DMV website (we’ll let you know when that change occurs).
Frequently Asked Questions
The faster we collect 250 applications, the faster the plates will be available. Please submit your application as soon as possible. We plan to do the largest promotional push prior to December, then will evaluate.
