DMV offers US Navy license plate to enlisted, veterans and spouses

The United States Navy celebrated its 247th birthday this week. The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles unveiled a new license plate to honor those currently serving or those who have previously served in the Navy.

Legislation introduced by State Sen. Jennifer Kiggans (R-VA) and signed by Gov. Glenn Youngkin authorizes the issuance of a revenue-sharing license plate incorporating the U.S. Navy emblem, with proceeds being donated to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Fund.

“DMV offers a number of license plates honoring our armed forces. We are proud to add the U.S. Navy as an option to those who bravely serve or have served our country,” said Linda Ford, Acting DMV Commissioner.

The license plate is available to those actively serving in the Navy, those who have been honorably discharged after at least six months of active duty, or those who have retired from the US Navy. Unmarried surviving spouses of eligible individuals may also receive the plaque.

The new license plate is available for an annual fee of $25. Once DMV issues 1,000 plates, $15 from each purchase will be donated to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society Fund to support its operations in Virginia.

The license plate can be purchased at any DMV Customer Service Center, DMV Connect, DMV Select office or online at
