CAPE ANN LICENSE PLATE
We are thrilled to announce that we have reached our initial goal of 750 completed applications for the Registry of Motor Vehicles to begin production of Massachusetts’ newest special plate, the Cape Ann License Plate! We are no longer accepting applications. If you would like to order a Cape Ann License Plate, they will be available through the Registry once this first batch of plates are on the road.
The Registry has informed us that future applications for the plate will not be accepted until the new plate is issued and on the road. The plates will take six to eight months to produce, which means we should see them by the end of 2016 (the Registry will notify applicants directly by mail when they are available for pick-up at branch offices). From then on, the Cape Ann plates may be ordered directly through the RMV.
If you are in the initial batch of applications submitted to the registry, please expect to see your checks and credit cards processed shortly.
We still have some incomplete applications and some checks that are dated over a year ago. Unless these are completed by next Friday, we will not be able to include them in the first batch for license plate production. If you have any questions about the status of your application, please call us immediately at 978-283-1601.
Thanks to all of you who have supported this worthy endeavor. In addition to showing your love of Cape Ann every day, the $40 special plate fee (payable every other year with your registration renewal) is a charitable donation that will be directed to the Cape Ann Community Foundation and used to support regional promotion, economic development and education for Cape Ann.
We are so excited to know that these fabulous plates will soon be on the road!
We are no longer accepting applications. If you would like to order a Cape Ann License Plate, they will be available through the Registry once this first batch of plates are on the road.
