Utah License Plate Types
In Utah, you have to display license plates on all registered vehicles in Utah. UT offers three regular issue tags as well as a range of additional ones, the majority of which may be personalized.
Most automobiles are required to have Utah front and rear license plates. Trailers and motorcycles, however, may only have them attached on the back.
Actually, there are two main types of decals offered by the UT DMV: standard and personalized.
Standard and Personalized License Plates
Standard License Plates are generally issued with car registration and have a common design. If you want to be different, and want to print your desired combination of letters and digits on your decal, you have to apply for Utah personalized plates. Generally, they cost more.
Before you submit an application with your custom design, it’s recommended to run a quick lookup and check the availability. Organizations, colleges, and military workers can also apply to get a Utah custom design for their labels.
UT DMV accepts online applications. And what concerns the limitations of numbers and digits, they are mainly based on the vehicle type. So the number of characters you should use on a standard one is up to seven characters. “In God, We Trust” is limited to 5 characters, and motorcycles can have only four characters.
Temporary License Plates
Generally, all the states of the U.S, as well as UT, offer drivers temporary tags to attach to their cars and motorcycles while their’s arrive. Temporary labels are like standard ones with a “Temporary” mark on them.
If you have made a purchase with the help of a dealer they will help you out to get temporary tags. In case it was a private sale, you may ask for them in the local DMV. You have to submit a bill of sale and a signed-out title by you and the seller.
The permit is due to the say you receive your package. You will also be charged a $6 initial fee.
Black and Special Interest Decals
Recently, there is a boost in so-called “vintage black decals” use in UT. However, the police have warned a lot that this type is completely illegal and cannot be used by drivers.
What concerns the special interest tags, they are generally attached instead of regular license plates. However, they are only used for a motor vehicle of any age that is being collected, preserved, restored, or maintained by the owner as a leisure pursuit and not used for general transportation of persons or cargo.
What does the “Apportioned” label mean?
Anyone with a car registered in two or more jurisdictions can apply for an apportioned label. The designation is uniquely designated to allow drivers to comply with the registration requirements of each jurisdiction in which they travel. And the fees are always calculated based on the amount of time spent on each one. The label is only for CVs.
