To qualify for group plates to be issued, a group must be a non-profit veterans organization
Has an established membership that includes officers and bylaws;
Is physically located in Oregon or has a chapter that is physically located in Oregon; and
Represents veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States, or is established for the purpose of supporting or
recognizing such veterans.
NAMES OF OFFICERS/OFFICIALS
List the name and address of the officer/official authorized to speak on behalf of the group in matters affecting group
plates. All groups must notify DMV anytime there is a change in the name or address of the officer/official.
A surcharge will be collected by DMV upon sale of these plates. Groups may specify an account into which the net
proceeds from the sale of the plates should be deposited. If no account is specified (i.e., this area is left blank), DMV will
deposit the proceeds into the Oregon Veteran’s Home Account. If your group chooses to receive the net proceeds from
the plates, you must attach a voided check from the account into which these proceeds may be electronically deposited.
Estimate the number of sets of plates that DMV can expect to sell within the first 12 months. DMV may set a maximum
number of sets that can be ordered at any one time, due to storage limitations.
Provide the word(s) or initials which are to appear on your group’s plate. These words
must name or describe your group and may not contain expressions of political
opinion or religious belief. Words must fit into approximately a 3" x 3" area.
Readability becomes difficult for letters less than 1/2" tall and for words with more
than 8 characters. If your group is using a military-related decal, you must supply a
color copy of the logo plus a camera ready separation and a digital file.
SALE OF PLATES
Any individual will be allowed to apply for group plates unless a group requests
restrictions. Restrictions may be service connected (e.g., Pearl Harbor group may
request that applicants be a Pearl Harbor Survivor to get their group plate).
Restrictions may not be based on membership (e.g., applicant will not be required to
be a member of a veterans’ club or association if they are otherwise eligible).
Veteran group plates are manu-
factured on white background
with an American flag and word
Veteran at the bottom of the
plate. The plates will contain a
generic plate configuration of 4
letters. This is an example of
what the plate will look like.
