Amistad License Plates


Amistad

Thank you for showing interest in the Amistad American Commemorative Plate.

When you purchase an Amistad Commemorative plate, you will help promote awareness of this proud Connecticut story to the nation and will also support the Amistad America Endowment Fund to ensure that the legacy of the Amistad is cherished for generations to come.

To order these plates, the vehicle must be currently registered in Connecticut. Applications for vehicles registered out-of-state or with a temporary registration will not be accepted.  Also, if your registration is due to expire within the next 45 days, you must renew your registration before applying for these plates.

You may only acquire the same registration type as is currently on your vehicle. For example, if you currently have combination plates on your vehicle, you can only request combination plates - you cannot request combination plates if your vehicle is currently registered with passenger plates.
