After you buy a car and get car insurance, your next step is to get your license plates. 

Your license plate number consists of a unique set of characters that associate your vehicle with:

  • Your current registration status and details. 
  • Your name and address.
  • Information about the vehicle itself.  

Like the VIN number, the license plate number is another unique identifier of your vehicle. 

Whether you’re getting the standard sequential plates or custom license plates, the process is basically the same. 

And then after you’ve got your new plates you’ll need to make sure to keep them up to date and renew your car tags each renewal period.  

We’ve compiled all the information you’ll need to make it easy to get license plates for your vehicle in each state.

This information is especially useful if you’ve just moved to a new state or have purchased a vehicle.
