TENNESSEE’S SPECIALTY PLATE PROGRAM
Tennessee motorists have the opportunity to display their school or civic pride and contribute to various programs of special interest when renewing their
vehicle registration. These plates may be obtained by taking your renewal notice to your local county clerk's office and paying $35.00 in addition to the
regular registration fees. Collegiate as well as all other specialized license plates display a logo or artwork designed specifically for each college or
organization. The Tennessee Arts Commission, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and/or many non-profit organizations all benefit in part from
the sale of Tennessee’s various specialty and cultural plates. Below are a few examples of the plates Tennessee offers:
Austin Peay MTSU Vanderbilt University of University of St Jude Animal Watchable Tennessee
TN-Knoxville Memphis Hospital Friendly Wildlife Titans
For more information on available plate types and how their funds are distributed, contact your County Clerk, or Vehicle Services at 615-741-3101.
