New specialty license plates now available

Blog-2015-0827-plates Four new specialty license plates to help personalize and customize your vehicle are now available for purchase from ADOT's Motor Vehicle Division. Supporting your favorite charity has never looked so good! Four new Arizona specialty license plates are now available for purchase from MVD and each one supports a different organization…

The new plates feature designs that spotlight the Arizona Coyotes, Midwestern University, the U.S. Marine Corps and Firefighter Safety Training. In addition to these new specialty plates, the Classic Car license plate is now available for personalization.

As we mentioned before, the funds raised by each plate will go to support a different charity.
  • The money raised by the Arizona Coyotes license plate will go to the Arizona Coyotes Foundation, which supports nonprofit organizations that serve children and service men and women with health care, education, cultural arts and youth sports in the state of Arizona.
  • Funds raised by the Midwestern University license plate will go to support scholarships for students studying health sciences.
  • The U.S. Marine Corps license plate funds will be used to award scholarships to children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen killed or wounded in combat or those children who have demonstrated financial need. This plate is also available for motorcycles and golf carts.
  • The money raised by the Firefighter Safety Training license plate will be used to provide scholarships for life safety training of firefighters in Arizona.
Specialty license plates have an annual fee of $25 for a nonpersonalized plate and $50 for a personalized plate, with $17 going to support the charities. Vehicle owners can order the new plates online at or at any MVD office or Authorized Third Party business. The plates are also available with a disability symbol.
