Colorado DMV to allow specialty license plates to stay despite lax sales

DENVER —  Dozens of specialty Colorado license plates will stick around instead of being retired, the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles said.

The DMV has done an evaluation that said 14 plates needed to be removed from the on-demand system.

Lawmakers had set a target goal of 3,000 plates that need to be sold every year. The specialty plates on the list had not met that goal.

However, the wording in the bill said the DMV “may” require retirement of a license plate, which gives the department flexibility.

Those plates will be made to order so they won’t require extra storage space.

The plates that will no longer be retired are

  • Juvenile Diabetes
  • Kids First
  • State Parks
  • Support Education
  • Support the Horse
