Special Event License Plates License Plates Guide

Special Event License Plates are a unique promotional item available to civic organizations and others by the Secretary of State's office. To qualify for these plates, the event must be open to the public and be an activity that promotes the interest of Illinois citizens. Upon approval by the Secretary of State's office, organizations may design and have manufactured license plates that may be displayed on qualified vehicles for 60 days prior to midnight on the last day of the event. The basic cost per set is $10; however, the number of colors will determine the final cost of the plates. There is no limit on quantity; however, the minimum order is 50 sets.
