You may have a blank space or hyphen as long as the total number of letters or numbers, hyphens and blank spaces is not regular plate and not more than six character spaces for motorcycle plates due to size limitation of the plates.

Examples:

• HOWDOO  • ME-4-U
• U 4 ME     • 87 JOE
Restriction

• Numbers only, such as 962 221, 1234, 661-280.
• Less than two characters, such as A or 1.
• More than six characters, such as MICHAEL, U FOUR ME, RICH MAN.

Costs
You will have to pay a $100 fee when you apply for Personalized Licence Plates. This fee covers the cost of processing your application and manufacturing the licence plates for your use. It gives the exclusive rights to the slogan on that vehicle type. If the slogan you have requested is refused or not available, the $100 fee will be refunded. Otherwise, the $100 fee is non-refundable.

Once your slogan has been approved and you have the plates, you will have to pay an annual $40 fee to maintain the rights to the slogan and the use of the Personalized Licence Plates. This fee is in addition to and does not replace your annual licence fee, which applies to all vehicles and which you are still required to pay.
