As of January 1, 2015, there were changes to vehicle fees and plate costs.
You must be a WA state vehicle owner and have a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) license. You’re only allowed 1 set of plates for 1 vehicle registered in your name.
Note: These plates are not available for trailers.
Save money. If your tabs expire in 6 months or less, save money by getting your new plates and tabs at the same time.
Contact a vehicle licensing office to get the total cost of your plates.
Fill out the Special Background, Personalized, or HAM Operator License Plate Application, include your payment, a copy of your FCC license, and a copy of your vehicle registration.
If you have an account, update it with your new plates:
You’ll need to pay the renewal fees to renew your tabs and registration every year, even if you’re not using the vehicle.
