New law raises plate fees starting July 1, 2022
COVID-19 closures are affecting the production of our license plates, tabs, and decals. This is causing significant delays in our ability to issue them to you.
You may want to consider waiting to apply for a personalized or specialty plate.
If you have a temporary permit expiring soon, you can visit a vehicle licensing office to get a new one.
We don't have a timeline for when production delays will return to normal. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
This plate is available to you if you're a WA state vehicle owner and have an Affiliate Radio License authorized by Department of Defense.
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 find out the total cost of your plates.
Mail a copy of your Affiliate Radio License, Military License Plate Application and payment.
If you have a Good To Go! electronic tolling pass, be sure to update the contact information on your account with the Department of Transportation:
There's no yearly plate fee for MARS plates, but you'll need to renew the vehicle registration and tabs every year.
