Specialty License Plate Program

In Tennessee, drivers can purchase certain Specialty License Plates in place of the normally issued state license plate. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these plates supports the organization featured so it’s a great opportunity to support the cause you care about most.  Nearly $5 million is generated annually from the sale of specialty plates to support the Tennessee Arts Commission which helps fund arts programs across Tennessee, including the CSO.
