License Plate Updates

Have you ever driven down a North Carolina highway and seen University of Florida license plate? Then did you wonder why the University of Kentucky could not do this. Well now, the opportunity exists for you to support a UK license plate in North Carolina. Details regarding this initiative are provided below.

The Overall Process

  1. Secure the University's Approval for Use of UK's Logo by North Carolina's DMV

  2. Collect the names of University Alums and Friends who Would Support a UK License Plate on their Vehicles

  3. Once Commitments for 300 or More Vehicles have been Obtained, Follow Up with Interested Parties for Vehicle Information

  4. Collect Vehicle Information and License Plate Fees

  5. DMV Designs and Produces License Plates

  6. License Plates Distributed

We are on steps 3 and 4 of this process and its now time for your participation. We actually have our 300 vehicle commitments, but have only received forms and checks for a little over 200 plates.  We are now collecting forms (UKLicensePlate.pdf) and checks for NC license plates with the UK logo.  Please send check and completed form to:

Marilyn Folnsbee (Charlotte UK Alumni Club)
P.O. Box 691542
Charlotte, NC 28227

Items of Interest

  • The logo provided to use by the University is the interlocking UK. This is the University's preferred logo for the future use.

  • The fees per UK license plate are $25 annually statewide except for Wake County where the fees are $28 annually. The Clubs will collect the first year?s fees. Individuals will receive notice from the DMV to pay subsequent year?s fees.

  • You may personalize your plate for an additional $30 annually.

  • A portion of the fees for collegiate logo license plates are collected by the Board of Governors for the University of North Carolina.

The following is a list of participants. Thank you for your support and timely submittal.
