Plate It Your Way

Personalized Plate Program:
Under section 257.803b of the Michigan Vehicle Code, the Secretary of State may issue a personalized license plate instead of a standard plate. This voluntary program allows individuals to request a particular configuration for their license plate. Because the Michigan Vehicle Code requires that the Secretary of State shall prescribe the letters and numbers for all plates, not all requests will be granted.

The Secretary of State will not issue a configuration of either letters, numbers or letters and numbers that carries a connotation that is profane, obscene; a swear word or depicts a swear word; sexually explicit or graphic; excretory-related; used to describe intimate body parts or genitals; used to describe alcohol, alcohol use, drugs, drug culture or drug use; used to describe illegal activities or illegal substances; used to substantially interfere with plate identification for law enforcement purposes; used to disparage or promote or condone hate or violence directed at any type of business, group or persons, a foreign word falling into these categories, or that conflicts with the regular license plate numbering system.

* PLEASE NOTE:
The Michigan personalized plate program is a voluntary program and may be suspended or canceled at any time. Under the Michigan Vehicle Code, the license plate is state property. Once issued, if at a later date the plate choice is determined to conflict with the standards listed above, the Department of State may recall the license plate.
