Q: What if I already have a Parkway plate?
A: The Parkway plates currently on the road no longer direct funds to the park, that’s why the Foundation is introducing this plate with a fresh design. It will be the only license plate in the commonwealth with proceeds dedicated to trail improvements, overlook clearing, historical preservation, and more within the national park.
Q: Already have a personalized Virginia plate?
A: Yes, you can transfer your existing personalization to your new plate as long as it is 6 digits or less.
Q: Do you have a multiyear renewal?
A: The Virginia DMV will invoice separately for the extra years.
Q: When will I receive my license plate?
A: Once we secure 450 preorders for the Parkway license, the Virginia Legislature can give final approval in February 2023 for the plate to go into production. Each new preorder gets us closer to seeing this attractive plate on the road and helping the Parkway.
Please note, there may be slight modifications to the plate design by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. In the event that preorders do not reach the minimum requirement, your payment will be refunded.
