MS license plate update in North and South Carolina
Initial Plate Cost to Now be Covered by MS Chapters
For more than two years, the NC Chapters of the National MS Society have promoted the availability of an MS License Plate. Sincere appreciation goes to many of you that have purchased an MS Plate for yourselves and family members and have patiently waited for your plate. Still, to date, we lack the number of applications needed to begin production.
In an effort to make the MS License Plate a reality in the near future, the North Carolina Chapters have decided cover the cost of an MS license plate for the first 300 applications. This is a cost of $25 per application for plates numbered 1 thru 300, $15 of which will be returned to our chapters to be used for local client programs and other local needs. With the National MS Society covering part of the cost, regular MS Plates will now initially be free. Personalized MS Plates with a four letter word or combination of four letters and/or numbers will now initially cost $30 rather than $55.
During the annual renewal the $25/$55 (personalized) fee will be due each year in addition to the regular license fee to the DMV. The $25/$55 specialized plate fee is an ANNUAL fee.
The creation of an MS license plate is an advocacy and awareness victory that we have yet to capitalize on. It is imperative that we get 300 applications as soon as possible. If you have not done so already, please consider applying for the NC MS license plate, so that we can reach our goal and carry out final production of the plates.
To apply for the MS license plate and have your initial cost covered; please mail your completed application to:
Please note that if you choose, you may still opt to pay the full fee of $25 or $30 (personalized), rather than have the fee covered by the chapter.
