When ordering a Choose Life Plate, the DMV will apply any portion of the registration fee remaining on your current license to the new Choose Life license. You do not have to wait until your normal renewal date to obtain a Choose Life tag.
The cost of a Choose Life plate will be $50 for two years over and above the cost of your normal license registration. This money will be distributed to agencies which assist women with unplanned pregnancies and those considering adoption.
You will also pay a one time fee of $3.50 to the DMV.
See FAQ at the bottom of this page.
You will need to bring your vehicle registration, current proof of insurance, and a check or cash. Please note that all DMV locations do not stock the Choose Life speciality plate at all times. They might ask you to return once they are ordered.
When calling the DMV, you will give them your license plate number and they will tell you exactly how much to mail in for the Choose Life plate.
You will mail in a copy of your vehicle registration, a copy of your current proof of insurance, and a check or money order to cover the cost of the new plate.
Note: Often, the DMV number can be busy or and the automated system can be tough to navigate. We encourage you to utilize the online method outlined in #2.

The Choose Life plate fee is $25 per year. Since the DMV registers plates on a two year cycle, the fee for getting a Choose Life plate will be $50, plus a $3.50 handling fee for the state. Any cost over and above this amount is the remainder owed on your normal license registration. Call us if you are confused.
