Vanity Maine License Plates

Maine’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles allows you to obtain vanity license plates for your motor vehicle if you wish to have them. The process is the same as applying for regular Maine license plates. You first must visit your local Bureau of Motor Vehicles and show proof of ownership of your motor vehicle along with proof of insurance. Along with paying the usual fees, you will also need to pay an additional $25 initially and an additional fee each year after paying your registration fee. If you are ordering a specialty plate, that will also be an additional $20. You can search for available vanity plates and order them online through the Bureau of Motor Vehicle’s website.
