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 License plate

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 Office of Alumni Relations to be submitted at the time of purchase.

Low Plate Number Update (as of September 2018)

The Hanover College license plate life cycle will renew in 2019. Anyone who currently has a low digit plate (HC1 - HC100) registered plate with the BMV will need to complete a low digit assignment form upon renewal in 2019, even if you are keeping the same number. Please contact the Office of Alumni Relations to obtain a new registration form. The license plate life cycle renews every 7 years.

Order your plate online or visit your local license branch.
