New Specialty License Plates Available Today
Today, Motor Vehicle Division Administrator Brenda Nordlund at the Montana Department of Justice announced that five new Montana specialty license plates and four redesigned specialty plates were released for sale. The plates can be ordered from county treasurer offices.
“Specialty plates like these give vehicle owners an opportunity to choose a plate based on the owner’s support of a particular organization or cause. Or they can simply just choose a plate because they like how it looks. Either way, specialty plates remain popular with Montanans and sponsoring organizations that earn donations from their sale, ” Nordlund said.
The five new specialty license plates are: Biomimicry Institute, CAN AM Lifeline Search and Rescue, Garnet Preservation Association, Lewis & Clark Humane Society, and Whitefish Legacy Partners.
The nonprofit organizations that redesigned their existing plates are: Great Falls College MSU, Heart of the Valley Humane Society of Gallatin Valley, MSU Bobcat Club, and Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary.
The new plates and information about each sponsoring organization and how it uses the donations can be viewed on the Motor Vehicle Division’s Plate Designs and Fees website at /driving/plate-designs-and-fees/. A report showing the quarterly total of donations collected for each sponsoring organization is available on the Motor Vehicle Division’s MVD by the Numbers website at /driving/mvd-by-the-numbers/ .
