Are there additional fees for specialty plates?
All specialty plates have an additional fee
collected to cover the costs of production
and special handling required. Some
specialty plates also include a fee that is
earmarked for the organization (for
example, the Ohio Pet Fund). The additional
annual charges range from $5.00 to $35.00
for specialty plates depending upon which
plates are ordered. The Ohio Pet Fund
charges $25.00. Remember the fee goes to
help homeless animals. The fee is charged
each year, including years when only a
validation sticker is needed.
