Personalized Licence Plates

Personalized plates cannot be used on vehicles which require special plates such as trailers, rental, dealer, public services, or commercial vehicles.



  • Guidelines for selecting your personalized licence plate slogan:
  • Slogans must be between two and six characters, inducing blank spaces.
  • Do not use numbers only, or any symbols or punctuation.
  • Do not use combination of letters or numbers that may be considered profane, offensive, or suggestive.
  • Do not use combinations of characters that conflict with numbering system already in use. This include slogans beginning with CV, PS, RE, D, M, C and P followed by numbers.
