Registration > Decal Plates

Pursuant to RSA 261:B, starting July 3rd, 2017, the NH DMV began offering our newest plate type, the Decal Plate. Decal plates resemble regular New Hampshire passenger license plate however, they include a 3”x3” blank square on the left side of the plate. This allows for the placement of a special decal issued by a 501(c)(3) organization authorized by legislature.  Legislatively authorized organizations may sell decals for a cost. Decals are NOT available at DMV locations, they have to be purchased directly from the legislatively authorized 501(c)(3) organizations.

Decals can only be placed on a Decal Plate. To transfer your existing passenger plate to a Decal Plate, please visit any of the DMV locations. To obtain a new Decal Plate, please visit your town or city clerk office.

Decal Plates are available for a $15 fee per year in addition to the town and state registration fees. Decal Vanity Plates are also available for an additional $40 vanity plate fee. An additional $8.00 plate manufacturing fee is only required in the first year of purchase.
