New California Ag license plate
Congratulations to the agricultural community, FFA and everyone who made this opportunity to create a California agriculture license plate a reality! We have collected 8,355 plate orders – meeting DMV’s threshold of 7,500 applications to establish a California Special Interest License Plate.
The California Agriculture License Plate will support future generations of farmers and ranchers through agricultural education, career awareness, career training and youth leadership programs. Proceeds generated through plate renewal fees will be awarded to agricultural education groups to support youth education and enrichment. It is anticipated that the first funding for educational programs will become available in July 2013.
CDFA is still working the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to incorporate the license plate into official order forms and online registration – these should become available before the end of this year. Updates will be posted to the CalAgPlate facebook and twitter accounts.
If you would like to join the agriculture community and order a license plate today, applications are being accepted and processed through the DMV. Simply complete the order form, print “CAL AG PLATE” at the top of the document, and follow payment and mailing instructions.
The Cal Agriculture License Plate is a great achievement for the agricultural community. Special thanks to all those individuals who made this initiative a success.
–Karen Ross, California Agriculture Secretary
