Secretary of State
Michigan is proud to recognize its men and women who served in the U.S. military. Residents who were prisoners of war and their spouses are eligible for an Ex-POW license plate.
The plate is available in the standard or Spectacular Peninsulas design. The fee for the standard design is $5. The Spectacular Peninsulas design is $10. You may also personalize the plate at no additional cost. You may purchase more than one Ex-POW plate. Only the service fee is charged for your first plate - no annual vehicle registration fee will be charged. However, the vehicle registration and personalized plate renewal fees will be due each year for every additional Ex-POW plate purchased.
Veteran plates can only be used on passenger cars, pickup trucks, vans and motor homes. Motorcycles, trailers and vehicles used commercially are not eligible.
Veterans and their spouses interested in obtaining an Ex-POW plate may apply at their local Secretary of State office by submitting a completed Application for Veteran License Plate.
