Your personalized plate will need to be picked up in our office at the above address. Typical delivery time is six to eight weeks. Be sure to bring your current license plate, original registration, current KY insurance card, $21.00 renewal fees, $25.00 plate fee and personal property tax for the year. Accepted methods of payment are cash, money order, cashier check, and personal checks on LOCAL BANKS ONLY.  We also accept Debit and Credit cards, as well as American Express.

Customers have the option of ordering a “new” plate each year, or renewing with a decal only. There is a $25.00 fee for either choice on top of the $21.00 fee for a total of $46.00 for a regular “Unbridled” or “In God We Trust” plate. When you mail in your renewal after you have a personalized plate, you will need your original registration, current insurance card, $21.00 renewal fee, $25.00 personalized plate fee and personal property tax amount, plus a $2.00 mail-in fee. You will automatically receive a decal unless you requested that a plate be printed during the previous year’s renewal.
