It's Time to Ride with Pride!

It's easier than ever to show your Panther spirit with our Indiana specialty license plate! Indiana residents can now handle the entire specialty plate request or renewal process directly through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

Whether you need to purchase a new Hanover College specialty license plate or renew your current one, you can go online to or to a license branch to handle the transaction. The cost of the Hanover College plate includes a $25 tax-deductible contribution that will directly benefit the College . We are honored to donate the profits from the license plate program to the Impact Hanover Fund.

Want Tax Credit?
To receive tax credit and receive acknowledgement from Hanover College, if applicable, you MUST check the box that authorizes the BMV to share your name with us. This is done at the time of your plate purchase. Without checking the box, your donation comes to the College as an anonymous gift.

Standard or Customized
You can select a standard specialty plate or have a fun, personalized plate by choosing a unique combination of numbers and letters up to six digits, including spaces. Low plate numbers (100 and under) require an additional form from Hanover College to be submitted at the time of purchase.

Low Plate Number Update (as of January 2016)
Due to a change in Indiana regulations, low digit (1 – 100) license plate cycles have been extended from 5 years to 7 years. The Hanover College plate life cycle was previously scheduled to end in 2016 but will now end in 2018. This change will affect the following low digit assignment rules:

  • Low digit plates may not be reassigned until 2019 (first year of next plate cycle).
  • Anyone who currently has a low digit plate registered may continue to renew that same number (without authorization) until the plate cycle ends (2018). A low digit assignment form will be required upon renewal in 2019, even if they are keeping the same number.

Order your plate online or visit your local license branch.
