Special license plates honoring veterans help fund veterans' fund

SACRAMENTO – The DMV said speicial interest license plates can now be ordered through the DMV’s online services with a click of a mouse. Proceeds of these popular specialty plates go to the Veterans Service Office Fund and are used to expand important veteran services statewide.

The plates are available in sequential (original $30/renewal $30) as well as personalized (original $40/renewal $30).

“Veterans plates make it easy for Californians to show their support and pride in the men and women of our military, National Guard, Reserve Services and our veterans,” said Peter James Gravett, Secretary of the California Department of Veterans Affairs.

Since the inception of the Veterans plate program in 1995, approximately 24,500 Veteran plates have been issued resulting in $6.8 million raised and distributed by the California Department of Veterans Affairs to benefit participating county veteran service offices and to commemorate veteran organizations.
