Governor Signs Legislation Authorizing New PENC License Plate

Governor Pat McCrory signed legislation authorizing PENC to create its own NC license plate.  The license plate design will look very similar to the graphic pictured above.  In order to proceed with the design and production, PENC will need to collect 300 applications and payment to submit to the Department of Motor Vehicles.  


Once this step is complete, the plate will be in full production and available through the regular license plate application procedures of DMV.
