Colorado, the wait is over. 

The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles is proud to announce the state’s 150th anniversary license plates are now available to purchase on Colorado Day, Aug. 1, 2023, until July 2027.

Coloradans can purchase either license plate online at myDMV.Colorado.gov or at a county-operated motor vehicle office. The license plates will cost $8.06 per pair, in addition to local fees.

The two license plates are based on the Historic Colorado Contest’s winning designs, which were determined in a statewide competition to design, then choose the winners in two divisions — Under 13 and Over 13. More than 34,000 Coloradans voted in the contest.

“Colorado’s awe-inspiring beauty was well reflected in the hundreds of great designs submitted by talented Colorado artists as we celebrate 150 years of Colorado history,” Gov. Jared Polis said during an event announcing the contest winners in March. "I am proud to congratulate the winners whose beautiful license plates will be on vehicles across the state starting this August."
