Here are a few frequently asked questions about our Choose Life License Plate program.
When can I apply for a Choose Life License Plate?
You may obtain CHOOSE LIFE plates at any time regardless of when your license plates expire. All Missouri specialty and organizational license plates have a fixed expiration month of July. No matter what month you have, DOR will change your month to July.
What if I already have personalized plates?
If you are someone who already has personalized license plates, your letters can be put onto the Choose Life license plates, however, you will have to surrender your current license plates when you pick up your CHOOSE LIFE license plates.
How many letters fit on a plate?
Choose Life license plates fit up to 6 letters, or 5 if you have disabled plates.
How much do personalized plates cost?
Whether applying for or renewing Choose Life license plates, a $15 personalized plate fee is assessed. If applying for two years, the first $15.00 is due when the DOR Form 1716 is submitted as stated in the previous sentence, and the second $15.00 is due to the license office when your plates are picked up at the license office.
Are there any additional fees?
When picking up your Choose Life license plates from the license office, nominal one-time fees will be charged by DOR in conjunction with your license plate. The fees range from $3.50-$4.25 each. Some of these fees vary depending on your license plate type and the specific circumstances of your license plate. For more information, please contact DOR at 573-751-4509.
