How do I order personalized plates and vanity plates in New Hampshire? New Hampshire

Ordering vanity plates or personalized plates in New Hampshire is a bit tricky, but here's how to proceed.

NH Personalized License Plate Procedure

The DMV only allows you to change your plates at registration renewal time. So, when it comes time to renew your license plates, pay the local fee due at your town clerk's office.

The registered car owner should then complete form RDMV 120 (Application for Initial Plates). Up to eight plate choices may be submitted in order of preference. A brief explanation of the meaning of each plate must be given. The DMV can refuse a plate request even if the combination is available.

Speaking of which, you can search the database online at the DMV site to see if your combination is available at the time of the application. For standard plates, up to seven characters can be used. You'll find complete ordering details on the form.

Drop off the form at a DMV branch office or online municipal agent office. Or, mail it to the Concord address listed on the form.

Custom license plates cost $40, in addition to the usual car registration fees. The state also offers several specialty plates, which can be ordered using the same form.
