Specialty Plates

Enter all letters and numbers that make up your plate number, from left to right, with no spaces. Most current Washington State plates, including specialty plates, use up to 7 characters to make up a plate number (some specialty plates have up to 3 letters for a school, for example, and then 1-5 characters). See example below for current standard passenger vehicle plate and the old standard. Specialty plates for groups or organizations include both the stacked or vertical characters and large horizontal numbers. See example below. For out of state plates, enter the letters and numbers, from left to right.

See additional examples of how to enter specialty license plates into parking pay stations.
