Request for new specialty license plate

Comments for Medical College of Wisconsin open until September 20, 2018​

Release date: August, 21, 2018

Using Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Division of Motor Vehicles’ (DMV) process for sponsoring an Authorized Special Group license plate, the application for Medical College of Wisconsin’s specialty license plate is available for review. There will be no donation fee associated with the purchase of this plate. The public review period will stay open for 30 days, until Thursday, September 20, 2018. All objections will be passed to the legislative Transportation Committees for the final decision on the plate’s status.

The new Authorized Special Group license plate process began October 1, 2016 with Wisconsin Act 227. When a group applies for a specialty plate, DMV will make the public aware of the application and invite individuals with objections to review the group’s application and to fill out an objection form. This form is available on the WisDOT website.

To apply for an Authorized Special Group license plate, groups must pay a $15,500 fee for development costs and collect signatures from 500 Wisconsin residents who intend to purchase the special plates. If authorized, the group must maintain 500 valid special plate registrations after three years, or DMV will discontinue issuing the plates. More on the process is available here.

A complete list of specialty plates currently offered is available on the WisDOT website.
