- Online applications may be made for the first time -
If you ever wanted to have a unique license plate other than a “vanity plate” you just might be in luck. The Registry of Motor Vehicles is accepting applications for the state’s Low Number Plate Lottery —there is no cost to apply. For the first time ever motorists can submit an entry online by going to: https://secure.rmv.state.ma.us/myPlateLotto/ Applications for the 2016 lottery are also being accepted by U.S. mail. If you prefer to mail in your entry you can download the one page application and the list of available plates can be found for free at: https://www.massrmv.com/Portals/30/docs/21843.pdf, or at Registry locations throughout the state. Please note that mailed entries must be postmarked by Friday August 26, 2016, to be eligible.
183 distinctive plates are part of the low plate lottery. While there is no fee to apply, if your application is selected as a winner there is a fee to receive the license plate in addition to the standard registration fee. The RMV requires that these plates must be renewed every two years.
The names of winners will be announced and posted on the Registry’s website by September 15, 2016. Good luck.
