Applications for New Special Group Recognition License Plates

A Special Group Recognition plate is a way to promote your organization while using the revenue to improve services provided or special projects. An organization seeking initial participation in the Special Group Recognition (SGR) license plate program must submit a completed application including required documentation to the BMV on or before end of business hours on April 1 for potential issuance in the following year.

Review the SGR Checklist to ensure you have all of the necessary documentation for your SGR application.

The applicant must email, mail, or hand deliver one original application with the required documentation to:

Bureau of Motor Vehicles
100 North Senate Avenue
Room N483
Indianapolis, IN 46204

What Happens After an SGR Application is Submitted?

First, the BMV will confirm receipt of your application. Next, your application packet will be reviewed by BMV to assess completeness. Complete application packets will be presented to the House of Representatives Roads and Transportation Committee, which usually meets mid to late summer. Note: The BMV will contact applicants when incomplete application packets are submitted. The committee will make recommendations as to which plates should be accepted, and the public may attend this meeting to support or object to the issuance of your plate. Based upon these recommendations, the BMV will then determine which plates are accepted into the program.

When is the Roads and Transportation Committee meeting this year?

Information on the committee's schedule this year will be posted when it becomes available. Check back for updates.
