North Carolina EV Specialty License Plate

Help us get North Carolina a specialty license plate to increase awareness and support of electric vehicles!

We are currently gathering applications from people interested in getting a specialty EV license plate. We will need one application per license plate requested. The application can be downloaded here. Please follow the steps below to ensure everything is completed correctly.

A standard specialty plate (you have no choice over license plate characters) will cost $10 annually, due in addition to regular license fees. A personalized version of the plate (you request specific characters) will cost an additional $30 (for a total of $40 annually). However, we have secured funding to cover applicants’ initial $10 fee.
