*Frequently Asked Questions on Purchasing ASLA Specialty License Plate


How does a person who reserved a plate number go about obtaining that plate?*

Customers that reserved a plate can obtain the plate by visiting the Specialized Vehicle Unit located at 7979 Independence Blvd. Baton Rouge La 70806. Out of town customers may also apply for the plate online at www.expresslane.org and mail the application and fees into po box 64886 Baton Rouge La 70896. Once they have printed the application, they should notate the reserved number needed to be issued. Mail in files can take up to 6 weeks to be processed.


How does a person go about obtaining a specialty plate who has not reserved a plate number?*

Customers that did not reserve a plate can apply online and mail the application and fees into the po box indicated above, as well as visit the Specialized Vehicle Unit for issuance. They may also contact their local office to verify if that office has the plate in stock, and schedule an appointment online at www.expresslane.org for the plate issuance.


How much will a specialty license plate cost?*

The Autism plate has the below fees associated.

· $50.00 royalty - in addition to regular registration fees, due at initial issuance and all subsequent renewals.

· $8.00 - handling fee due on all transactions except renewals.

· $3.50 - administrative handling fee due only on initial issuance.

· $3.00 - transfer the plate to another vehicle in the applicant’s name


What if a person has just renewed the registration for their license plate?*

Credit is automatically calculated for any time remaining on their current plate. Each plate cost will be different, as it is based on the specific vehicle. There is no credit applied for the $50.00 royalty and handling fees, so at a minimum a customer applying for first time issuance of the plate will pay $61.50 (50.00 royalty, 8.00 handling, 3.50 one time admin fee).


How much money will the Louisiana State Chapter affiliate receive from the sale of each specialty license plate and how will that be distributed by OMV?*

Royalty checks are mailed out quarterly through our finance department. The chapter will receive $50.00 from each plate sold/renewed within that quarter.
