NEW LICENSE PLATES COMING IN 2017
The Wyoming Department of Transportation will be temporarily putting a hold on new specialty plate applications from September 24, 2016 through October 3, 2016 to prepare for the plates that will feature a new background.
During the transition, WYDOT will be processing the requests it currently has and then accepting new applications starting on October 3, 2016 so workers can then process the requests for the new plates.
Starting in 2017, the new plate design featuring the Lower Green River Lake and Squaretop Mountain will be on the state's 12 specialty plates, the prestige plates and the standard plates motorists receive at the county when registering their vehicles. (The University of Wyoming plates will reverse colors: from Gold letters on Brown background to Brown letters on Gold background.)
WYDOT will contact all specialty plate customers three to six months prior to their plate's expiration, reminding them to reapply for the specialty plate. Most specialty plate customerw who reapply in 2017 will have the option to keep their existing plate combination. (Guard plate numbers will be reassigned based on Rank and Date of Rank; some Veteran Plate numbers with a final alpha, will receive a 5 digit number.)
