FAQ
How do I obtain an Ohio Pet Plate?
You may order the specialty plates either in-
person or by mail. There are three ways in
which you may order the Pet Specialty
License Plates:

1. Deputy Registrars: Requests for the Pet
Specialty Plate can be made at any deputy
registrar's office. Your Pet Plate may be
paid for at a deputy registrar's office and
will then be mailed to you. If necessary, the
deputy can give you a permit which will
allow you to operate your vehicle while the
plates are being manufactured.

2. By Mail: Request forms are available at
any deputy registrar's office. You may
complete a form and send it with special
documents to the address listed on the
form. If you choose to have a personalized
plate, your choice ( if available ) will be
assigned and an application will be mailed
within 5 days. You will need to mail the
application, fees and any required document
(s) to the address on the application.
Special plates will be mailed to your address
shown on the application.

3. By
OPlates: Special plate requests can be
processed on the
OPlates.com Internet site.
You may check availability, renew,
upgrade, and replace your license plates at
OPlates.com.  This option can only be used
if your vehicle is already registered.  
Vehicles that have never been plated by the
new owner, must registered at a local
deputy registrar office.  

If you order by mail, the BMV will bill you; if
you order at a deputy registrar’s office,
you’ll pay in person.

The plates are mailed directly to the
address you put on the order form. The
BMV or deputy registrar can issue a
registration card, validation stickers, and a
permit that allows you to operate your
vehicle while the plates are being
manufactured.
