A personalized license plate is a great way to customize your car. With a personalized plate, you can display a sentiment on the front and back of your car that no one else has. You can cheer on a sports team, advertise a business, support an organization, or list your spouse’s initials next to your own. Whatever you choose, it’s a way to make your vehicle unique to you.

In Missouri, ordering a personalized license plate is very affordable, and can easily be done online. It only takes a few minutes, so it’s well worth it if you’re looking for a fun addition to your vehicle.

Part 1 of 3: Choose a personalized license plate

Step 1: Go to the Missouri website: Visit the official website for the state of Missouri.

  • Tip: If you would rather not handle the personalized license plate process online, you can visit your local license office.

Step 2: Go to the driving and vehicles page: Visit the Missouri driving and vehicles website.

From the main Missouri web page, hover your mouse over the link that says “Home and family” to reveal the dropdown menu. Then, click on the link titled “Driving and vehicles”.

Step 3: Go to the personalized plates page: Navigate to the personalized license plates page.

Scroll down to the header that says “Vehicle titling and registrations”, then click on the link titled “Personalized and specialty license plates”.

  • Tip: The personalized plates page contains a lot of important information about ordering personalized license plates should you have any questions or concerns.

Step 4: Choose a message: Select a personalized license plate message.

Click on the link titled “Click here to personalize and reserve”.

Select your vehicle type, and then write your message into the boxes provided. Your message can be up to seven characters, and can include a space, hyphen, or apostrophe. If you do not use a space, hyphen, or apostrophe, the message can only be six characters.

Click the “View” button to see what your personalized message will look like.

  • Warning: Crude, offensive, or inappropriate license plate messages will be rejected. They may appear as available on the website, but your application will not be accepted.

Step 5: Check the availability: Check the availability of your plate message.

Click the button titled “Check availability” to see if your message is available. If it is listed is unavailable, try again until you find a message that works.

Step 6: Explain the meaning: Provide an explanation of your license plate message.

In the box at the bottom of the page, write the meaning of your license plate message. This is to help the Department of Revenue determine that your plate message is appropriate.

Part 2 of 3: Order your personalized license plate

After finding an available license plate message, click on the link titled “Reserve now”.

Fill out all of your personal information, and all of your vehicle’s information. Be sure to double check for accuracy and spelling.

  • Tip: If you want to order a special license plate design for your personalized plate message, you cannot do it online. You will have to visit your local license office.

  • Warning: If you are ordering a plate for someone else, you must also provide their information under the header “Vehicle owner information”.

Step 2: Select your local license office: From the dropdown menu at the bottom of the page, choose the license office closest or most convenient for you, then click “Continue”.

Step 3: Pay: Pay the personalized plate fee.

Enter your credit or debit card information to pay the $15 personalized license plate fee.

  • Tip: If you would like to pay by cash or check, you will have to visit a local license office.

  • Warning: The $15 personalized license plate fee is in addition to any standard license and registration fees and taxes.

Step 4: Verify and confirm: Verify your payment and confirm your order.

Follow the instructions on your screen to verify your payment and confirm your personalized license plate order.

Part 3 of 3: Install your personalized license plate

Step 1: Go to the license office: Go to your local license office when your plates are ready.

When your plates have been manufactured and shipped to your local license office, you will be notified. When convenient, go to the license office.

  • Tip: Be sure to bring your registration information when you go to the license office.

  • Warning: It can take a few months for your plates to be processed, manufactured, and shipped. If you would like to check the status of your plates, click the link titled “Check the status of your personalized plate order” on the personalized plates page.

Step 2: Fill out the required information: Fill out the required information at the license office.

The license office will have some more forms for you to fill out before you can pick up your plates.

Step 3: Install your plates: Install your personalized license plates.

As soon as you get your personalized license plates, install them on both the front and back of your car.

  • Tip: If you do not feel comfortable installing your new plates, ask someone at the license office to help you. If they are unable to do so, hire a mechanic to do the job for you.

  • Warning: Be sure to place current registration stickers on your personalized plates before driving.

Follow those easy steps and you’ll have a great personalized Missouri license plate that says something fun about you. If you’ve been looking to have a little more fun with your car, a personalized plate might be the perfect choice.

Jeep Compass - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - North Hollywood, California
I made an appointment to have my brake rotors/disc replaced. On the day I scheduled my car services- it ended up raining. Willie checked in, moved my appointment, and continued to communicate through out the day until he was able to come work on my car. He took great car to make the repairs ANNNDDD SAVED ME MONEY by only doing what was necessary (only one of the rotors needed replacing). A blessing.
