New Children's Hospital License Plate up for Review

Using Wisconsin Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles’ new process for sponsoring an Authorized Special Group license plate, the application for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation’s specialty license plate is available for review at Funds from the $25 donation will go toward the Wisconsin Children’s Hospital Foundation and support child-life programs, like art therapy, which are not covered by insurance. It will also go toward needed supplies and equipment to advance ground-breaking research for children.

Public review period will stay open for 30 days, until April 23. All objections will be passed to the standing chair chairpersons of the Transportation Committees in both the Senate and Assembly for final decision on the plate’s status.

When a group applies for a specialty plate, DMV will make the public aware of the application and invite individuals with objections to the authorization of the group to fill out an objection form. This form is available on the DMV website at

To apply for an Authorized Special Group license plate, groups must pay a $15,500 fee for development costs and collect signatures from 500 Wisconsin residents who intend to purchase the special plates. If authorized, the group must maintain 500 valid special plate registrations after three years, or DMV will discontinue issuing the plates. More on the process is available here.

A complete list of specialty plates currently offered is available at the official Wisconsin DMV website.
