Driving breast cancer out of town in 2017

breast cancer license plate

Linda Gill shouldersIt’s been more than a year of work, but the breast cancer awareness license plate is here! A special thank you to Linda Gill, breast cancer survivor and volunteer for Susan G. Komen Great Plains, who worked tirelessly to bring this plate to the public

You can apply now for the new specialty plate with a pink ribbon featuring the message “Early Detection Saves Lives.” Plates assigned an alpha/numeric combination by the Department of Motor Vehicles are free. If you want the plate with a custom message, the price is $40.

To receive a breast cancer awareness license plate


  1. Apply online or fill out the form and return via mail.
  2. Once the application has been processed, an approval letter will be sent to you by first class mail.
  3. The approval letter will indicate the date the plates will be available at your County Treasurer Motor Vehicle Office. Current plates and registration must be surrendered when the specialty plates are registered. You should allow 4-6 weeks for the plates to arrive at your County Treasurer Motor Vehicle Office.

If you would like to transfer from your current plate to the breast cancer awareness license plate, you should apply for the breast cancer specialty plate. Once the plates are available, bring in your current plates and pay a minimal transfer fee of $12.10. You may also choose to wait until your vehicle registration is up for renewal and order the breast cancer awareness license plate at that time.
