Deputy Registrars:
Requests for special plates can be made at any
deputy registrar's office.  The pet plate may be paid for at a deputy
registrar's office and will then be mailed to the customer. If
necessary, the deputy can give the customer a permit which will
allow them to operate their vehicle while the plates are being
manufactured.

By Mail: Request forms are available at any deputy registrar's office
and on the BMV Web site. The customer may complete a form and
send it with special documents to the address listed on the form. The
customer's choice (if available) will be assigned and an application
will be mailed within 5 days. The customer needs to mail the
application, fees and any required document(s) to the address on the
application. Special plates will be mailed to the customer to the
address shown on the application.

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

option can only be used if your vehicle is already registered.

registered at a local
deputy registrar office.  For those out of state
and buying a new vehicle, you may find instructions
