---- Washington State Square Dancer License Plate ----
Program Coordinator - Doug Keyes

WA SD License Plate
The 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 the above license plates effective July, 1993. Oklahoma followed two months later and there are now nine states with Square Dancer License Plates.


Benefits of square dancer plates

Square Dance License Plates are available from any Licensing Agency. All you have to do is take your vehicle registration or license “Renewal Notice” to your local friendly Department 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.

They are better than Vanity Plates because it does not cost you anything
additional each year to keep them. It is a one-time-only fee as described above.
