New charitable plates will raise funds

CARSON CITY – The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles will release two new charitable license plates on Tuesday, October 1.

The “Forever Strong” plate is being released on second anniversary of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas.  The plate will raise funds for the Las Vegas Resiliency Center, which continues to assist victims of the tragedy two years ago.

The plate features a black and gold “Vegas Strong” heart logo on a gold gradient background with “Forever Strong” centered at the bottom of the plate.

The “STEM” license plate will help promote education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through grants to non-profit organizations.  The grants will be awarded by the Nevada’s Governor’s Office on Science, Innovation and Technology (OSIT) and a STEM advisory council.

“Many of the jobs today’s K-12 students will hold have not even been invented yet.  But the skills students acquire in a high-quality STEM education will prepare them for life no matter the pathway they choose,” said OSIT Director Brian Mitchell.  “I’m excited these license plates will help raise awareness for STEM education in Nevada and want to thank the DMV for all their help in the design and production.”

The STEM plate features the OSIT logo on a green gradient background with the initials “STEM” across the bottom.

Both specialty plates will cost $62 for standard numbering and $97 for personalized plates in additional to all other registration fees.  If swapping plates on an existing registration, the DMV will charge an additional $6 fee but no smog check or registration renewal is needed. The annual renewal will cost $30 for standard plates and $50 for personalized versions.

The DMV encourages customers to make appointments for office visits and to order personalized plates online.  See the DMV website at
