Generally, personalized and cultural plate applications must be made in advance
to the State office. The standard personalized or college plate costs $35.00 extra
each year in addition to the regular tag registration fee. A personalized collegiate
plate costs an additional $70.00. Some collegiate plates are in stock. Please call
423/209-6525 to make inquiry.
Application forms for personalized and college plates are enclosed in the renewal
notices mailed to motorists before the expiration of their current registration.
For a personalized tag to be manufactured and returned to the County Clerk's office
by the 25th of any month, the application must reach the Nashville office by the
last day of the preceding month.
Motorists with a valid tag must surrender the tag to the Clerk's office before being
issued the personalized or college plate.
One-of-a-kind personalized or college plates are normally issued at the Bonny Oaks
Branch. If you prefer to pick up the tag at the Courthouse, please call one day
in advance and the tag will be transferred from the Branch to the Courthouse for
issuance. When picking up your personalized or college plate, please bring the approval
letter received from the State office. Please call 423-209-6525 to make inquiry.
