DES MOINES — Iowa vehicle owners purchasing personalized or specialty registration plates are now able to complete the process online. This new online application allows customers to apply for plates where and when it is convenient for them rather than using the paper application that has been in place for many years. The online process can be completed by customers in minutes, with typical application processing around one day, rather than the paper application process which can take up to 18 days. 

Go to iowadot.gov/personalizedplates and enter information about the vehicle you are licensing and type of plate you are wanting. All specialty and personalized license plate orders are subject to Iowa DOT approval.
