Custom Empire license plates with a combination of two to six letters and/or numbers, followed by the International Symbol of Access, are available
to qualified disabled individuals. See Part 2 below for a description of qualifying disabilities. These custom plates are available only for vehicles that
use passenger plates and for vans and pick-up trucks registered by disabled persons, and may not be used for commercial purposes. The initial fee
for these plates is $60.00. There is a $31.25 annual renewal fee for these plates in addition to your regular vehicle registration renewal fee. You will
be billed $62.50 (two $31.25 annual renewal fees) for your custom plates every two years when you renew your registration.
To obtain these plates:
1. Verify that the vehicle on which the plates will be used is registered in the name of the person with the disability.

NOTE: A medical certification is not required if you already have plates for the disabled and want to exchange them for custom plates
for the disabled. If you currently have plates for the disabled, check the appropriate box in Part 1 and provide your plate number so
Custom Plates Unit staff can verify your registration.
