Creative Missouri License (Plates)

Of the many ways Americans express their individuality, personalized license plates are quite a commitment. They require an investment of thought and money, as well as reflect your choice for a year or more.

Here in Missouri, vanity plates are big business. You can also advertise your altruistic side with vanity plates that support charities that support organ donation, breast cancer awareness, anti-terrorism efforts and even fund improvements for the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City. Here’s what to know if you might be ready to take creative license for your new plates.

Creative Missouri License Plates

You don’t have to wait for a new car to get new plates.
Your 20 year-old Honda has just rolled over 200,000 miles. Celebrate with personalized plates that say “YAY200K.” Even if your current registration is valid another few months, you can order your personalized plates online. Your current registration fees will apply to the personalized plates when you pick them up from your local license office.

There are limits to your new plate’s content.
Missouri law won’t allow you to use your new license plates to tell the Chicago Cubs what you really think of them. Missouri Section 301.144, states “No personalized license plates shall be issued containing any letters, numbers or combination of letters and numbers which are obscene, profane, patently offensive or contemptuous of a racial or ethnic group, or offensive to good taste or decency, or would present an unreasonable danger to the health or safety of the applicant, of other users of streets and highways, or of the public in any location where the vehicle with such a plate may be found.” In other words, make sure the vibes that inspire your ideas are nothing but positive.

Checking availability for your license plate idea is simple.
The Missouri Department of Revenue has made it easy to find out if someone has been as creative as you. The Personalize & Reserve feature allows you to review a personalized license plate configuration, determine if your desired configuration is available, and reserve it all online. Click here to configure and order your Missouri personalized license plate. Missouri DOR staff will review your idea to make sure it is appropriate under established guidelines.

Personalized plates are an interesting way to show a bit of yourself. How about a Ford Mustang with the license plate LILPONY. A teenager drives his mom’s old station wagon with the license plate YNOT. Just make sure that your license plate doesn’t end up written on a driving violation.
