DOT Creates New North Dakota License Plates

Posted: Updated:
Although the new North Dakota license plates won't be available until next fall, talks about the new look are circulating.

It's been more than 20 years since the plates got a new look and the Department of Transportation (DOT) says they've gotten mixed reviews. The decision to change them was made in the last legislative session, and more than $6 million was given to DOT to help drivers avoid additional fees for the new plates.

"The old plate was a popular design. It sort of encompassed North Dakota, so it is sort of an update to that. It still features buffalo and the North Dakota Landscape. It's kind of a enhanced-upgraded feature," says Jamie Olson of the DOT.

The Highway Patrol and tourism specialists were asked for design input for almost one million North Dakotans getting new plates.
