How long will it take to receive my Specialty License Plate?

Based on the arrival of your application, it may take 4 to 6 weeks to process and receive your new plate. Your complimentary membership will be processed and mailed in approximately 2 weeks or less.
I’ve already renewed my PA plate registration this year. Does purchasing a new specialty plate mean that I have to re-enroll/repay my registration fee again?
No. Your plate registration remains under the same annual cycle with the state of PA. The state will simply replace your plate registration with a new number. All else remains the same.
To keep my Specialty License Plate, do I have to remain active and in good standing with Friends?
By purchasing a Specialty License Plate you’ve taken the first step to demonstrate your support. Thank You. While we hope you will enjoy your membership and participate in activities throughout the year, we recognize there may be other reasons that prevent you from renewing your membership and will not result in revoking your Specialty License Plate.
