Amateur Radio Plates

Special license plates are available for use on vehicles containing mobile radios, and whose registered owners hold valid Federal Communications Commission (FCC) amateur radio operator's licenses. This class of plate is referred to as "call letter" or "amateur radio" plate.

An individual or organization may request one set of amateur radio plates for each radio license issued to them by the federal government.

The following are required with an original request:

If the applicant certifies to all six questions on the Certificate of Eligibility there is no registration fee.  If the applicant only certifies to question one, the applicable registration fee for the type of vehicle being registered will be charged.

The first set of standard (blue & gold) license plates are issued free of charge, however, if a customer requests the mountain or caribou plates, the $30.00 personalized plate is charged.

Full registration fees are required for commercial vehicles.

Original requests for amateur radio plates are processed at the Anchorage Field Office.   Renewal and transfers  may be processed at any field office.  Your FCC license and a new Certificate of Eligibility is required.

Due to the paperwork requirements, this type of plate cannot be renewed using our online services.
