Design, purchase your specialized license plate online
While driving around town, you may have seen special license plates on automobiles. These plates provide a fund raising vehicle for organizations represented on the plate. The popular plates I see display a whale tail or the Golden Gate Bridge. But did you know that motorcyclists can purchase special plates, as well? According to the DMV's Ask George column, California's 40-year-old specialized license plate program offers the same logos for bikes as are sold for automobiles. Among the designs are those that support the Arts, Kids, Coastal, Lake Tahoe and Veteran’s Organizations. The specialize plate, which cost higher than regular plates issued by the DMV, have generated $630 million for these organizations.
