    Well, I had a message on my answering machine that the plates are in. The message also told me that they close at 4:45 each day except for Wednesday, when they're open until 6:30. Looks like I'll be making a mad dash from work next wednesday (65 miles one way). The message also mentioned a license plate transfer fee, but didn't say how much that is. Has anybody else had to pay that fee? If so, how much is it?

    Here is a roster of all of the states that currently have an official Masonic license plate. Florida has plans to get a plate, but there have been some difficulties in getting it through the final approval process. Arkansas has an official Masonic plate, but Arkansas Masons are forbidden by their Grand Lodge from purchasing the plate.

    If your state does not yet have a Masonic plate, then you should get in contact with your state's Department of Motor Vehicles, and inquire about getting one approved. (I contacted my state senator [in Kentucky], and I got the approval in Kentucky).

    My understanding is that PHA got it done & GLoA ain't happy about it.

    I have tried to download the form for the Texas plate from the Texas DMV website and I can't get the .pdf to download. Does anyone know where else I can get the form?

    Also attached the PDF for ya! (it's the Texas Masons checkbox)

    Some states only require a front plate. Texas requires a front and rear plate (although you will see some people not using their front plate).

    Do you pay the $30 fee every year or just when you first purchase the plates.

    $30 every year, in addition to your regular renewal fees.
