Apply By Mail

  1. Download and print this application.

  2. Complete the application and return, with check, to: Plymouth 400, Inc. Attn: Cheryl Soares 134 Court Street Plymouth, MA 02360

  3. Make your $40.00 check payable to Plymouth 400, Inc.

Please note: Your check will not be cashed and the plates will not be manufactured until we reach 1,500 license plate sales (we're SO CLOSE!). Please spread the word so we can get these beautiful license plates on the streets!


A few important notes...

  1. Your check will not be cashed until 1,500 pre orders are received.

  2. Once your payment is processed the $40.00 is non refundable.

  3. The RMV requires a $20.00 plate transfer fee plus any applicable registrations fees due at the time of plate pick-up.  These fees will depend on your current plate number and expiration year.  For instance, your current plate may expire in  March of 2012.  If your new plate expires in January of 2013, the registration system will charge you an additional amount for the extra time you receive on your registration.)

  4. You will be notified by mail that your plates have been shipped to the requested Registry of Motor Vehicles branch.  Bring your registration and current plates (if applicable) to the branch at that time.  Before manufacturing of these plates begins, 1,500 pre-orders need to be collected.  Once that number is achieved, it will take approximately 6 months to manufacture the plates and for them to reach the branches. 

  5. Registrations must be renewed every two years.

  6. If you are putting your plate on a newly acquired vehicle, you must pay applicable sales tax, title and registration fees at the time of registration.

  7. These special plates are available to Massachusetts residents using this form only; there is no online ordering process at this time.  License plates will use randomly assigned numbers only.
