Personalized license plates are a great way to have fun with your car. With a special theme and a one-of-a-kind message, you can really say a lot about yourself with a personalized license plate.

With a personalized license plate, you have something that is truly unique: no other car on the road has your license plate. Whether you choose to have the initials of your kid, or profess your devotion to a sports team, it’s a space to project something that you find important. Purchasing a personalized Connecticut license plate is quick and easy, and can be done online.

Step 5: Fill out your basic info: Fill out your basic information in the personalized plate form.

Return to the vehicle services page, and choose whether you are an individual or an organization.

Step 7: Choose a message: Choose a license plate message.

Input your chosen license plate message where the form prompts you.

Follow the instructions on the form to check the availability of your license plate message.

  • Tip: Since Connecticut is a relatively small state, there are many available license plates, so don’t be scared to try something that you think might be taken.

  • Warning: If the plate message you choose is crude, vulgar, or offensive, the DMV will reject your application.

Step 8: Pay the fee: Pay the personalized license plate fee.

When prompted, pay the fee that comes with your personalized license plate.

  • Tip: You will need to pay this fee with a credit card.

Part 2 of 2: Install your personalized license plates

Step 1: Get your plates: Get your personalized license plates.

Your license plates may be shipped to you, or they may be shipped to your nearest DMV. If they are shipped to the DMV, the office will call you when they arrive, and you can go pick them up.

  • Tip: Your personalized license plates may not arrive for two or three months.

Step 2: Install your plates: Install your personalized license plates.

Once you have your plates, install them on both the front and the back of your vehicle. Be sure that they are secured properly.

  • Tip: If you do not feel comfortable installing license plates by yourself, you can hire a mechanic to come help you.

  • Warning: Make sure to put current registration stickers on your new personalized license plates.

I had a few mechanics from YM and _all_ of them arrived late (some even 2 hours late) , but not Jose! He arrived right on time! I gave him the keys and let him do his job. I am a curious person so I asked him a few questions about his techniques and he had no problem answering them all with detailed explanations! He did run into a problem on my car because of stripped bolts, but he literally went above and beyond and found a way to remove it. Best mechanic ever.
