The replacement plate cycle will start April 1, 2012 for the May 2013 registration renewal month.
You should recycle your old plate. You are not required to turn in the plates to the County Treasurer. The Vehicle system will record that new plates have been issued to a customer.
The background design will remain the same with the rural and city scene in the back ground. In July 2011 the numbers and letters on the plate changed from blue to black color. In November 2011 the zero was changed to a circle slash zero to assist law enforcement. Eventually, the letters on the plate will come before the numbers, for example: BBB111.
If your plate is 10 years old or older you have no choice, the vehicle system is programmed to automatically issue a replacement plate.
If you choose to replace plates outside of your plate replacement period, you will be charged a $5 replacement plate fee. You will also need to turn in your old plates and current registration. If you do not have the current registration to turn in, a $3 replacement registration fee will be assessed.
The front of the renewal notice will have a ‘Y’ in the ‘Plates’ column field.
