CHARLESTON, W.Va.-West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Commissioner Joe Miller approved the first two non-profit organizations to begin accepting applications for special license plates promoting their organizations. The Friends of Coal and Mountain State University organizations met the guidelines established by the Legislature.
Miller said, “I wish both groups success in their marketing efforts to obtain the minimum 250 prepaid applications”.
The law restricts DMV from beginning actual production of license plates until the organization has collected at least 250 applications and full year fees at $70 per application within a six month time frame. “I encourage everyone who may be interested in showing support for Mountain State University or the Friends of Coal to contact these groups and get on their list now, because these groups are on a deadline,” said Miller.
Applications may be downloaded from the DMV web site here, or by contacting Mountain State University (Office of University Advancement) at (304) 929-1338 or Friends of Coal (WV Coal Foundation) at (304) 342-4153.
