Depends on the state. You pay extra every year in some states, while in others, it's a one-time expense.

It's only $15 a year. Afraid it'll be a little cheezy though.

So far, the available ones I've found are:

NEWBIE
MAF1050
DOUGHNT
MTNBIKIN

and um... HERPES

I don't suppose ARRESTED would be a good one...

Not unless "DEVELOPMENT" would fit on the same plate.

Edit - That wasn't a comment aimed at slvoid personally.

I saw one a little while back that read: 3M TA3. It works well in states with front plates.

Very true -- some dirtbag backed into my girlfriend's car door at a gas station and then sped away. Unfortunately for him, his license plate said "Amos E" and the police officer knew exactly who it was.

O0Q00OQ.

It regards my religion and my heritage. Denying me this plate would be racist and, you know... mean.

I would also accept NVMMMWV. Or B838BB8.
