Washington State Square Dancer License Plate ----
Coordinator - Dick & Bonnie Blewett
original idea for a Washington State Square Dance License Plate
started with Beth & Roger Barnes at the National Square
Dance Convention in Salt Lake City , Utah in June of 1991. The
state of Washington was the 4th state to issue Square Dancer
License Plates, behind Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Tennessee.
By action of the State legislature, after more than a year of
effort and negotiation by representatives of the State Square
Dance Federation, the State Department of Transportation issued

of Vehicle Licensing Agency. To purchase a Square Dancer plate
will cost $67.75 for a vehicle requiring two plates, plus the
subagent fee and any required registration fees. The $67.75
contains the $40 fee for the Square Dancer background, a $10
per plate original issuance fee, $2 per plate reflectivity fee,
a $3.75 filing fee.
Unlike most special plates there is no extra charge to renew
a vehicle with a Square Dancer plate. If you change cars, the
plates may be kept and transferred for a small fee. After 7
years, by state law, you must replace your plates. When a plate
needs replaced at 7 years the renewal fee will be $24 more than
usual ($10 per plate original issuance fee & $2 per plate
reflectivity fee) and if the customer wants to keep the same
license plate number they can pay an extra $20. There is no
extra fee if you accept a new number. These fees are state mandated.
You may have additional fees charges by a private licensing
agency. Your new square Dancer Plate will expire exactly on
the same date as the plates being replaced. Therefore you can
make the change whenever you wish.
