Starting May 1, 2025 BMV and Agents will no longer issue chickadee plates for PC class codes and your plate(s) will be swapped when you re-register your vehicle(s). 

You may choose from...

  • a Pine Tree Plate for no additional cost
  • a "No Tree Plate" for no additional cost
  • or one of the current specialty plate options (specialty plate fees apply)

Other classes, including but not limited to the following, will change for no additional cost but will only have the

Pine Tree option:

Antique (AQ)                                   Combination (CM)                                          Commercial (CO)               

Custom Vehicle (CV)                      Disabled (DX), Farm (FM)                   Horseless Carriage (HC)

Low Speed (LS)                              Motorhome (MH)                                  Special Equipment (SE)

Special Mobile Equipment (SM)

If you would like to keep your current plate number you will be able to do so through a centralized, web-based solution. This system SHOULD be available by May 1, 2024. More communication will come shortly on how to do that once the process is finalized. 

If you choose to renew your registration online there will be a process for that as well, more info to come.

This will be a long process for staff and we ask that you be kind and make the change as easy as possible. We will promise to do the same for you.
