A special NC Master Gardener license plate was approved by the Legislature in 2014. The cost of the plate is $20.00 annually in addition to the regular registration fee. The plate can also be "personalized" with any combination of letters and numbers in the four available spaces for an additional $30.00 (total additional cost of $50.00). Half of the fee for the regular plate goes to DMV. The remaining $10.00 is automatically donated to the NC Extension Master Gardener Endowment, maintained by the Cooperative Extension Service Foundation at the NCSU Agricultural Foundation.
Applications for the plate are available at any DMV office. The plate can also be ordered online by following these instructions:
