Support Youth: Rotary License Plate Program

Support Utah Rotary Youth Programs 
WHILE promoting Rotary everywhere you drive. 

It is really easy to support our younger generations: Get a Rotary license plate (and please renew it every year!).  Proceeds from these license plates allow us to put on trainings and events for our youth, recognize exceptional leaders, as well as send our Interactors & Rotaractors to Rotary conferences.

Here's how you can get your Rotary license plate (at all DMVs in Utah):
  1. In person at the DMV, submit the paperwork needed to register your vehicle.  Let them know you want to have the "Humanitarian Service" special group plate.  You'll pay $16 for the initial special plate fee, and an additional $25 for the contribution (which is also the price of renewing).
  2. By mail, submit a copy of your current registration, along with a note that you would like the "Humanitarian Service" special group plate. Include a check for $45 ($25 towards youth programs, $16 for the plate fee & $4 for postage) made out to: Utah State Tax Commission Motor Vehicle Division. Mail everything to: Utah State Tax Commission Motor Vehicle Division P.O. Box 30412 Salt Lake City, UT 84130.
For more info, call 801-297-7780 or 1-800-DMV-UTAH (800-368-8824), or click HERE for the DMV special group plates webpage.
