The Equity Alliance SPECIALTY license plate


Thanks to the fantastic response of our supporters, we met our goal to sell 1,000 pre-orders for our specialty all black license plate by June 2022 in February! Y’all showed up and showed out! 

Missed the pre-order? Still want a specialTEA license plate?
After the printing and distribution blackout period, The Equity Alliance specialty all black license plate will be listed for purchase on the State of Tennessee Department of Revenue website.



When will I get my license plate?
After pre-orders closed March 31, 2022, The Equity Alliance sent all pre-order information and payments to the state to begin the 4-6 month blackout period for printing and distribution. Once printed, license plates will be sent to the respective local county clerk’s office for each pre-order to be picked up. 

Although we submitted the final design for the license plate, the state reserves the right to make changes to the design and colors to meet state design standards.

What happens to my existing license plate?
Your existing license plate will remain in service until the state notifies you that the new license plate is ready for pickup. After your new license plate is registered, you can retire and save your existing license plate.

How do I renew the tags on my TEA license plate?
Just as a standard license plate, renewals are handled through the State of Tennessee Department of Revenue. They will mail you a reminder postcard to renew your tags at the appropriate time.

Can the license plate be personalized?
Personalized TEA license plates are expected to be available once the State of Tennessee Department of Revenue published the license plate on its website.
