After a civic event takes place, a person may register a civic event license plate as an authentic civic event license plate. This means that the plate functions as a registered plate rather than being for display purposes only.
In order to register a civic event license plate as authentic, the plate must be assigned to a civic event vehicle that was used in that specific civic event.
Eligible Vehicle Types
Any vehicle used in conjunction with a civic event is eligible to be registered with an authentic civic event license plate.
An Authentic Civic Event License Plate fee is due at time of issuance and annually upon each subsequent renewal.
In addition to this plate fee, vehicles registered with an authentic civic event license plate are subject to a registration fee and the appropriate vehicle, county, and municipal taxes.
To register an authentic civic event license plate for the first time, please complete the Civic Event Authentic License Plate Affidavit – State Form 56419. Instructions are included on the form.
All subsequent renewals may only be processed at a branch or by mail.
