Missouri Redesigning Motor Vehicle License Plates


Why are we changing our motor vehicle license plate?
This change is to commemorate Missouri's 200th anniversary of statehood.  State law requires the Department of Revenue to begin a full reissuance of license plates with the new plate design no later than January 1, 2019.  The new design commemorating our bicentennial will replace the current Missouri bluebird license plate.

Who decides on the new plate design?
According to state law (301.125, RSMo), an Advisory Committee is responsible for determining the new plate design.  The committee is made up of the director of the Department of Revenue or his or her designee, the superintendent of the Highway Patrol, the correctional enterprises administrator, the director of the Department of Transportation, the executive director of the State Historical Society of Missouri, and the respective chairpersons of both the Senate and House of Representatives Transportation Committees.

Can I attend any public meetings on the new design?
Yes, there are public meetings scheduled in four locations throughout the state to invite public input on the final design.  The dates and locations of these meeting are below.  All public meetings will start at 6:00 p.m.
