The public can now review a new specialty license plate requested by the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 139, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles announced this week.

To view the special group license plate application, visit wisconsindmv.gov/specialgroupreview. Public commentary is open through Feb. 21.

This is the first step in a process for groups interested in sponsoring an Authorized Special Group license plate. The public can now review each application submitted to become a special group plate and submit an objection if they do not approve of the special group plate. The public review period will stay open for 30 days. All objections will be passed to the legislative Transportation Committee for final decision on the plate’s status.

Act 227 changed the approval process for new Authorized Special Group license plates. This became effective Oct. 1, 2016. Full information on the new application process is available here.

A complete list of specialty plates currently offered is available at https://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/dmv/vehicles/title-plates/special-list.aspx.

Specialty plates and regular plates can be ordered and renewed online at wisconsindmv.gov. Only the website with .gov is the official state website. Others with .org and .com are not official and may have extra charges for forms that are free from Wisconsin DMV or these organizations may list information that is dated or incorrect.
