Black license plate available in Iowa

-A A +A


An all-black license plate with white lettering is now available to Iowa drivers. During the last legislative session, members of the legislature approved the new “blackout” design of specialty license plates.

The new plate will cost $35 for a standard alpha-numeric plate. A personalized plate will cost an additional $25, or $60 total. Funds generated from the blackout plate will go toward the Road Use Tax Fund, which funds road and bridge projects within the state.

On ordered at iowadot.gov/mvd/vehicleregistration/vehicleregistration/plates/blackout, Iowa Prison Industries will make the plates and ship them to the appropriate county treasurer’s office.
