FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What needs to happen for me to get a UGA license plate on my car in Tennessee?
Tennessee residents will need to commit to purchasing at least 1,500 UGA specialty plates if/when they become available. Once that threshold is surpassed, payment will be collected and then submitted to the Tennessee Department of Revenue. It then takes 4-6 months for the plate to be produced.
When 1,500 commitments are made by June 30, 2022, what happens?
The UGA Alumni Association will work with the Tennessee Department or Revenue to provide required information for a license plate to be processed. It will also follow up with those who committed to purchasing a plate to begin collecting payment. Once those funds and names are submitted to the state, it takes approximately 4-6 months before the plate is produced.
If 1,500 commitments are not made by June 30, 2022, what happens?
If, by June 30, 2022, the 1,500-commitment threshold has not been surpassed, Tennessee alumni chapter leaders may continue sharing the sign-up form, or they can decide to pause and try again in another five years.
How much does it cost to commit to a plate?
Since you are simply pledging to purchase a plate if/when they eventually become available, there is no cost to sign up now.
Once 1,500 commitments are made, UGA will formally request a new specialty plate with the state. At this time, the state charges $35 per specialty plate. As UGA does not control this cost, it is subject to change. There also may be administrative fees included.
Can I secure a UGA license plate for my motorcycle or RV? Can my handicap tag have the UGA design?
This design is not available for handicap, motorcycle, or RV license plates.
What if I move before the campaign concludes?
No worries! If you move prior to the UGA plate becoming available, you will not be held accountable to purchase the plates you commit to. But if you are still a Tennessee resident, we will still expect you to fulfill your pledge.
