OK who is taking all the good FL plates?? I just went to get my new plate--needed to renew sine my birthday is soon--I wanted the new wave patten which allowed 5 places First I went for SOLFN---taken -next I tried SLSTC and that was taken I then had to give up on the plate I wanted and had to go to a 3 and 3 pattern and a different plate. Got SOL (manatee) FUN at least the grey of the mantee will match my Sly car

here in VA you can look for any number of plates and see if the vanity plate is available..reserve it....pay for it...and wait for it to show in the mail....car must already be in the DMV database to do this however!

In Florida, I do not believe you can check on line (unless you have access to the DMV database - law enforcement, insurance personnel or state people).

CT sounds similiar to VA. In RI it is still submit a paper form at the DMV. The in demand plates (low numbers are the hot ticket in RI) are done by lottery once enough get turned back in.

You can go to DMV office in Fla. and they can enter any combination into their computer that you want and tell you if it is taken. :cool:

You can download the forms to send in, however and do the rest by mail.

NJ has the same type of system. Used it to get my SOLST1S plate. Of course, it is still riding around on my Grand Prix. :(

In Cali you can do it online. Most everything good was taken. I purchased SOL E2D, (solitude). I am not sure if the car or the plate will arrive first. Car (1.....2578) was built on 10/5. Plate ordered on 10/6

If I was lucky enough to get a first thousand car it would be cool to just put the vin #.

Here's an idea, get 'YEP'.
Just point when someone says "Nice car!"

No kidding! I thought mine would not be taken.

I gave the dealer 3 choices and they didn't deliver. They said they cannot get custom plates and that I have to go to the DMV and take care of it myself.

I stopped by the DMV yesterday. My top 3 choices are taken!

SOL MATE
SOL MAN
SOL M8

I don't know what to do now, I have one last good idea and I hope it's not taken!

I took SlySol back in July, been on my Altima for quite some time now. Only a few more days, hopefully, and it will finally be on my Solstice!! :)

Thanks for the post dori-san. I requested SOL Mate and SOLM8 thru my dealer when I got my Sol this week. Guess there is no need waiting for either of those. Hopefully my next choice will be available. :confused: I just requested a personalized plate (plain old FL plate), not a special, vanity plate so maybe I'll get lucky and at least get one of the things I requested.

I had quiet a run around trying to get a personal plate here. DMV said they couldn't help, that I had to do it through the dealership. So I went back to the dealer and completed the form, but they didn't have any way of checking to see what was available. DMV didn't tell me they could check on what was taken. Helpful folks weren't they?:(
